Garden Tomatoes

What an abundant garden I had this year. Just amazing! I had a bumper crop of all my tomatoes. Here is the list of the heirlooms I started all from seed: Italian, Yugoslavian, Amish Paste, Black Krim, Black Tula, Gold Medal Winner and Nebraska Wedding. I also grew a red cherry, yellow cherry, Lemon Boy, Big Boy, and a Beefsteak.

Here are some of my tomatoes being hardened off.

And this is how tall they get.
 My heirlooms grow 5- 6 ft tall.
 I plant one morning glory with each one just to be pretty.

Nebraska Wedding Tomatoes

I canned juice, froze sauces and salsas, and tried sun dried tomatoes this year for the first time. Sun dried tomatoes is something I want to do again. They are delicious. My hubby built me some new tomato cages this year that I really liked using. They worked much better than anything I have had in the past.
