MY HEIRLOOM TOMATO UPDATE!
Finally, we have some ripe tomatoes. It has taken forever considering I planted them early and they got so big so fast. Here are the first ones. The odd shaped one is Tula of Russia and delicious.
This is the Black Krim. Very juicy and sweet.
Here are my Tula of Russia Tomatoes on the vine. They are very large and heavy and finally beginning to ripen.
I picked this beauty this morning. I could not believe how juicy and sweet it was. I had it on a bagel simply topped with salt and pepper...yummmmmm!
I know now that for the growing season in 2013 I am sticking to the Tula of Russia and the Black Krim. I have planted the smaller grape tomatoes and they have not grown well and a yellow tomato which I do not see at all. I will not get as many as I hoped but it is the first time from seed. I think it will just get better and better as I learn what grows best. How were your tomatoes this year?
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
