I still love you, pretty heirloom tomato

Revealing the awful truth about my on-again/off-again relationship with heirloom tomatoes this year in my last post did not dampen my enthusiasm for them. They don’t seem to like me, but I still love them. I can remember years past when I excitedly pored over the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company catalog, thinking about all the cool things I was going to grow. Sigh. So I am appeasing myself with this great article from Rodale’s Organic Life about 19 great varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Oh, the beautiful photographs of such beautiful tomatoes… And they weren’t all perfect looking. That made me feel better. A little.  I think I can scroll through the pictures this time without crying…maybe…
