By far my favorite plant from the vegetable garden is the tomato. I don’t buy them from the stores if I can help it as there is very little flavor to be found in store bought tomatoes. Fresh from the garden is how a tomato should be. Today on a gray overcast winter day I’m looking back at the tomatoes of the past from my garden. Those fresh garden tomatoes can’t come soon enough for me!
Roma tomatoes are excellent for making tomato paste or sauce. Of course we’ll happily make sauce from just about any tomato from our garden.
‘Cherokee Purple’ tomatoes are delicious for slicing and eating. The ‘Cherokee Purple’ tomatoes even have a Tennessee connection.
The ‘Woodle Orange’ tomato is one of the most delicious tomatoes we’ve ever grown. It’s my number one for slicing!
‘T.C Jones’ is the yellow tomato in the upper left corner of the picture. I’ll grow it again! It was almost as tasty as ‘Woodle Orange’.
