surprised by tomatoes
Ok, I have 32 tomato plants that I've watched closely, not every variety I started made it to the garden and some I really wanted may not be there, but I had some yellow pear-they didn't last long enough for pictures- that recently ripened, they are not that tasty. I found some lovely yellow cherry tomatoes today I 'didn't know' I had. Then we tasted them, Yummy, a mild yet tart flavor, lots of the juice one expects in a cherry [not much in the yellow pear, btw] so googling it we found out that they are called Siberians or Galenas. Yes I had planted a few Siberians but for some reason I hadn't looked at the images. And I found out my 'pet' tomato is a black cherry, that's more good news as none of the other's survived. The only real disappointments so far are no Homesteads and I'm not sure if any of my favorites-Amish survived. I just bought a bunch of heirlooms to see which I prefer, I love the Amish, and Black Krims, I'm hoping to find more favorites.
