They look so good…can’t wait for ours. 3 cherry tomatoes this morning – it’s a start! 😉
so worth the wait—yep, they began ripening right after the magazine shoot!
mmm very tasty. We went out for a special meal last night (wedding anniversary) and I had a platter of locally grown heritage tomatoes for a starter, they were gorgeous.
just celebrated our anniversary last week! congrats!
Those black pineapples look amazing!
Colors this year are amazing. I am starting my seed saving next week.
Thanks for dropping by my little blog! Stacey
Wow they’re all so beautiful looking. I love how pretty the Black Pineapple is inside. Love the heirloom varieties!
Gorgeous! We did not garden this year due to renovating and moving but I cannot wait to get my hands in the soil at our new house in the spring. I go bonkers over growing heirloom tomatoes, I love the Purple Cherokee, it has a wonderful flavor and great smoky color. The Orange Flesh Purple Smudge is amazing.
I sure wish I could share with you! I am slow roasting a big batch in the oven right now!
We too, are going to “start” the remodel this Fall…it actually was delayed from this Summer, when we found out about Country Gardens coming…
the garden became the “project”. for the season! Now I can’t wait to start making my house match the garden!
Picture, old farmhouse, with an 80’s remodel, followed by a 90’s addition.
Good bones, but no character–the farmhouse got lost–and oh the shiny brass must go!!!
We are hoping to bring it back to a modern farmhouse feel…oh do I have ideas!!!!
Following along on your project too!
Excellent tomatoes. The hot weather does good for tomatoes, if they get enough water. My system failed and they are behind; but I think they will catch up.
I wish you were my neighbor! I would beg for tomatoes!
We practically are neighbors! I’d be happy to share. 🙂
All of the varieties are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing photos of varieties I haven’t tried. Do you know what issue the garden will be featured in yet?
No word yet, but Kate Carter Frederick believed it to be next “Fall” issue–which would mean on the newstands Aug of next year.
I must put it out of my head for now! This will be worse then Christmas anticipation!!!
I clearly got carried away with the catalogs early this Spring!!!
I love your varieties…I have seven but will try to see if I can find seeds from some of your varieties for next year. I love having different ones cut up in a salad. So pretty and tasty.
I think the crazy number was 40–that I grew this year! I am going to cut back on that for next year for sure–but still love a nice colorful variety–your so right a plate of heirlooms is not only beautiful, but full of flavor!
I’m going to start my seed saving next week and hope to do a post or two about it–maybe my first “how I do it” post! Inspired by Claire. And, I would LOVE to send you some saved seeds. That’s why I started this blog–to meet fellow gardeners and share! 🙂 Stacey
That would be absolutely wonderful! I could share with you but with 40 varieties you probably have all the ones I am growing.
