This is an unabashedly bragadocious post about my tomatoes and peppers. My friend and gardener extraordinaire, Linda, gave me some of her tomato starts last spring and they are brilliant and perfect. The rest of the tomatoes were miracle volunteers and they are all cherry tomatoes, as suspected.
My favorites are Gold Nugget and one Linda had marked as “Brandywine?” But it isn’t a Brandywine….cause it doesn’t look like this. The mater does, however, have Brandywinesque leaves. They seem to be a bit prone to blossom end rot. Perhaps a calcium deficiency…Anyway, it is pictured in the very bottom image. Anyone? It is delicious, meaty, not seedy and slightly sweet.
All that heat paid off (kinda. it still sucked really bad).
