I didn't even like tomatoes as an adult. I did as a kid and after I grew some for my wife is realized I love home grown tomatoes.
To have the room other time to grow 500 different varieties of tomatoes like Amy, wow!
I feel.im doing well growing 40 different varieties in Colorado.
Last season we lost a month to a last cold spring, endured over half a dozen hail storms.
Still have a few jars of tomatoes in the pantry from last season.
After experiencing the flavor and different varieties it's hard to enjoy store bought even from the pricey high end grocery stores
Miss Goldman's chapters include tips on how to grow tomatoes and how to save the seeds for planting next years crop. She then goes on to describe the differet types of tomatoes: cherry, globe, ribbed, beefsteak, pear, and oxheart; and then various color groups are discussed, such as: white, yellow, orange, striped, black, and green. The full color photos are all very tastfully done by Victor Schrager, many of them masterpieces of art, which make it so easy to enjoy this book. The last chapter is full of tomato recipes: Gazpacho, stuffed tomatoes, tomato sauces, butter, tomato bread, salsa, fried green tomatoes, tomato chips, chutney, pickles, ketchup, tomato cocktail, and many more.
I bought my heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, [...], but there are also additional seed sources available in the back of the book. You will not be disappointed with this book.
It will be difficult to find another book on heirloom tomatoes with so much information. Amazon also sells it cheaper than I could find anywhere else.
