Tomato Seed Shopping Spree!

I know it’s probably quite early, but I threw caution to the wind and purchased several packets of tomato seeds today, for next year’s tomato container garden.  Inspired by the miraculous emergence of tomatoes in my container garden in the winter (see the previous post), I purchased the following varieties of seeds: (1) Black Krim, organic, heirloom – five packets, (2) Green Zebra, heirloom – five packets, (3) Aunt Ruby’s German Green – organic, heirloom – three packets, and (4) Rainbow Blend cherry tomatoes – two packets.

I am a very big fan of Black Krim tomatoes – incredibly flavorful and the plants produce  a generous crop. Green Zebra tomatoes are delicious and are less acidic – their gorgeous green striations, contrasted with the mostly yellow-green, make this a truly beautiful and tasty variety! Aunt Ruby’s German Green tomatoes will be new for me so I’ll report on them when they fruit. The Rainbow Blend cherry tomatoes – wow, it really just takes no more than one or two plants to supply you with all of the cherry tomatoes you can handle, and share with others! So incredibly juicy and a reliable producer – I love them!

Today’s seeds will more than meet my tomato needs when Spring rolls around – a summer of oh-so- juicy tomato goodness!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: The non-fruit parts of tomato plants are poisonous if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
