“A number of rare or newly experienced foods have been claimed to be aphrodisiacs. At one time this quality was even ascribed to the tomato. Reflect on that when you are next preparing the family salad.”
-Jane Grigson

“It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”
 -Lewis Grizzard

We purchased some fine and interesting tomato plants yesterday from Pete's Produce in Westtown. This should be a really great tomato summer.  I've only posted photos of these three, the Pink Brandywine, the Striped German and the Green Zebra.  I'm extremely excited about the (previously unknown to me) Brandywine Suddeth, described as the "most delicious tomato of all."  They're all planted now and are cheering this rainy, slightly chilly, gray morning.
