‘Maters and other matters.

Excited for my selection of tomatoes this year.

  • Pantano Romanesco
  • Juanne Flamme
  • Green Zebra
  • Black Prince
  • San Marzano
  • Sungold
  • Black Cherry
  • Blue Berries

The last three are cherry tomatoes, I like to have three kinds on hand in different colors, which are easy to slice in half and create a beautiful tomato salad in a matter of minutes. I like a paste tomato for drying, canning, or saucing.

And beyond that, I like colorful, medium-sized tomatoes. The larger ones are impressive and beautiful, but I’ve never found them to be prolific—and prolific is my bread and butter baby. The pantano is new to me and the biggest of the lot.

Eggplant-wise, I bought one of each from one of our local CSAs: Purple Long, Rosita, Falcon. Eggplants are more the mister’s bag.

From the things I started early spring, I am continually happy with the Saxa Radish (just 21 days), the stir-fry mix I planted, and the orach that self-seeded.

Now just waiting to see if the cucumbers sprout, or if I’ll need to pick something up. Because massive amounts of cucumbers are on my agenda this year.
