With many rainy days this week, I’ve been dreaming about hot summer days, my garden, and growing delicious tomatoes.
A few weeks ago my friend Terri sent me a list of “this year’s offerings.” I love how she is so generous with her greenhouse, sharing it with many. So the dreaming begins … when we get to place our order with her.
This year I put in for Cherokee Purple (Heirloom) Health Kick Hybrid, and 1 Burpee’s Burger Hybrid.
We love the Tomato Sweet Tangerine.
Actually we’re trying a few different varieties this year. But here’s a picture from last year’s crop.
Did you know that as the most popular summer crop, tomatoes are the easiest to grow?
I love the color, sizes, flavors – each one different for however you’re cooking, or you may want to eat it fresh off the vine.
Make sure the frost has passed and the soil has warmed up a bit.
1 1/2 – 3 feet apart if you are staking or supporting them.
3-4 feet if they are not going to be supported.
One of may favorite summertime salads!
So enjoy. And dream along with me of the beautiful color … and delicious flavor.
Oh … come, summer, come!
What’s your favorite tomato to eat or cook with?
