    I love my tomatoes.

    Any heritage types that I can get my hands on. I save a HUGE area in my garden for my tomatoes. I am chomping at the bit to get my garden planted this year, I miss the taste of real, fresh veggies!

    growing our own veggies is one way to get a hedge against high gas prices, you get to enjoy flavorful veggies, be proud that you grew them, and you don't have to use gas to go buy them.

    Last year I tried Black Krim and Cherokee Purple - Bothe good producers, but I prefer the smaller tomatoes, they taste less tomatoey and tend to be sweeter to me.

    I found a flat of my all time favorite at an Amish sale last weekend in Kentucky. They are German Johnsons. They are a pink,potato leafed,indeterminate. They get very nice and big and seldom crack. A little late but keep produceing all summer till frost. They will grow as tall as you can stake them!. Hard to find the plants and I was really excited to find a flat of 18 nice three inch pot size plants.

    P.S. I had to cover them with straw tonight because it might frost!
