Tomato Time

As most of you already know, I save Oxheart heritage tomato seeds every year. My daughter who lives nearby starts the plants and takes some to her sister in NJ. She also plants some for herself and shares with others. I was talking to NJ and she was boasting about her tomatoes this year as she grows several varieties. She has to contain them in a cage because the squirrels there gobble at them and ruin them. She just sent me this photo of today's picking. There are four or five of the Oxhearts on the platter. The PA tomatoes aren't yet ready. Soon they will be and the process will continue next year. Both of these daughters know how to properly save and plant these. They are special.
