At the last minute
I've been reading a lot about heirloom tomatoes lately. Different tastes. Different colors.
Like any new interest crushes develop. You sneak around to get a look at your favorites and silently pine after them.
Two I've been very interested in were Black Krim and Aunt Ruby's German Green. I have so many paste tomatoes that it seemed worth it to pick these two up today when we stopped by Jungs.
When we got home I planted them in two of the extra holes. I took off the bottom four branches and planted them deep to develop a good root system.
At Jung's I even chatted with an elderly gentleman who'd never heard of the heirlooms they had out on the table. We talked tomato flavors. It was a lot of fun.
