Tomatoes—Fried, Green, or Otherwise
Canning tomatoes are another story—I have a few of those too. I am going to use Jersey Giant myself.
Salads I am thinking small tomatoes, ox hearts, cherries, small plums. Placero, Red Fig, Gold Pear, Plum Lemon and Black Cherry.
Think of the colors and the tastes. That's where I am really going.
Roasting tomatoes or drying them with rosemary, olive oil and a touch of sea salt. Flavor, flavor flavor.
So choice—guess I better stay to topic. I am having choice problems because I having to many choices offered to me. THAT is a good thing.
Some other great tomato offerings are—Balck From Tula, Amish Paste,Green Sausage, Japanese Trifele Black, Striped Cavern, Ukrainian Purple, Kellogg's Breakfast, Dr. Wyches Yellow, Black Sea Man,Tasty Evergreen, and Great White. Funny how a picture can influence you or reading another persons blog or article.
I guess I have developed my list in this blog, or cut it down to size. It's truly interesting how one comes to a decision. I am needing to start these in the greenhouse this coming month. I would recommend when you transplant your starts to use a manure tea such as http://www.manuretea.com/
