CAN YOU HELP ME OUT? I’m trying to decide on which tomatoes to grow this summer. I’ll certainly include some of the heirlooms which have performed well for me in the past. But what else am I missing? Talk to me about your own favorite heirlooms and hybrids.
Some of my tried-and-true favorites:
My version of a succulent tomato sandwich: thickly-sliced tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil leaves and mayo on a homemade English muffin.
Don’t pretend you didn’t notice the plate in the above photograph. I purchased this floral horror several years ago at a junk-tique shop. What was I thinking?
Probably I’ve just insulted someone’s cherished china pattern.
The tomato pie in question. It’s too delicious for words. Here’s the recipe.
And here is a newbie for me: ‘Theuret Brandywine.’ Reader Judy Hines sent me seeds of this variety. It’s an heirloom tomato that her neighbors have grown for generations. She sent seeds to Seed Savers Exchange, too, for the sake of posterity. Good for her.
