Art tomato


Or is it tomato art?

I’m not sure what’s going on. Two of my tomato plants are ho-hum. Dotty-yellowy leaves, not a tragedy just not quite right. Not sure why. I think they’re purchase-mates.

The rest are plenty green. Just taking a production break. Or the rodents are getting any of the product that’s getting the rosy tint we all hope for.

This one’s a yellow tomato. Not to be confused with the orange tomato (we ate one tonight).

Okay, it’s a green yellow tomato. But it’s still a yellow tomato.

And not a pear tomato.

I’ll stop now.

    My grandfather grew the biggest, reddest tomatoes I’ve ever encountered. Unfortunately I didn’t appreciate them at the time. I have since experienced heirloom tomatoes in CA and haven’t found the same since. Homegrown looks good, but will the local farmers market carry the same? I must explore.

    Came home Saturday afternoon to sliced heirloom tomatoes (from Plum Market, no idea where before there) topped with slices of “real” mozzarella, basil leaves, and a little olive oil. Obviously the kids have graduated from spaghettios and box macaroni and cheese.

    Our farmer’s market(s) do sell homegrown heirloom tomatoes.
