A Rainbow of Tomatoes!

My friend, neighbour and partner in (gardening) crime, Raylene introduced her dad to the wonder of heirloom tomatoes this past summer. An experienced organic market grower, he had always grown the traditional hybrid beefsteak tomato. So, last spring, Raylene gave him the seed for a handful of new types to try - Black Krim, Persimmon, Costuluto, Sungold, Cherokee Purple - and he grew them in his large garden.

These photos show you the results! One day last September, he pulled up in his car and opened the trunk - it was completely (and I mean completely!) filled with a rainbow of tomatoes in every size and shape imaginable! Here are some photos from that day..
