Heirloom Tomatoes and Open Pollinated Tomatoes dominate this years selections for my garden
My research perimeters and areas I put in place brought me to this point. And they were ease of growth, earliness of harvest, tomato varieties that could take a small ride without bursting. Then I had to think about packaging I found it easy enough to find pint containers. My idea is to sell tomatoes by the pint and quart just fill them up with any tomato variety and there will be a set price per pint and quart.
The varieties I have chosen are mainly Cherry Tomatoes and Paste but there are a few larger types of tomatoes that I will grow. I believe I have 3 hybrids and the remaining tomatoes will be heirloom and open pollinated. I do have some crosses that I am growing out that should be interesting that I have picked up along the way from friends. I am hoping to have photos of lots of tomatoes this year.
I am so excited to start this year. I broke my ankle Febuary 2nd and I have been running behind ever since but I am hoping the Doctor will let me start therapy on my leg so I can get things in the garden rolling. I will start planting my tomato seeds in the next couple of weeks so I have 6 to 8 weeks to get things in shape. lol
