Does this guy know what he is talking about? I definitely agree with him.
Do you plant a variety of tomatoes each year? I always do, with cherry tomatoes, Early Girl, Big Boy, and then some new to me, like Stupice and Zebra.
In my area, where we don't get ideal huge amounts of heat and sun, I sometimes plant San Francisco Fog, varieties from Russia, and Stupice which is from Poland. Cherry tomatoes do well here.
Some lucky folks from hotter areas have already harvested their tomatoes. Mine are still green and the stuff of dreams.
Of course I also plant basil and oregano to perfect future tomato salads.
What varieties of tomatoes do you favor?
