Am gardening two 4 x 8 foot raised beds again this year. We've had a good bit of rain and the tomatoes are coming up beautifully. I've planted five different varieties; two are heirloom plants that Elysa brought home from a farmer visit in her purse (thx, Elysa). 


Heirloom Tomatoes

We found a bunch of old seed packets in one of the kitchen cabinets when we bought our house.  We planted them this spring. Got some delicious cucumbers, nice squash, and a bumper crop of heirloom tomatoes.  This has been a great year for tomatoes, and I eat sliced tomato, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaf salad several times a week. Building the raised bed in the backyard was a good idea (thx, Elysa).
