I have a new crop coming


The photo is of a Black Vernissage heirloom tomato, just starting to ripen. On the back side is one that's really ready to go!! The most exciting part of this for me is the growth, from seed, to fruit is completely organic, including no synthetic fertilization, which is great because tomatoes are considered 'heavy feeders'. So my use of compost is working with produce that has a higher soil nutrient requirement, and the plants are loaded with fruit! I'll be interested in lbs of yield, Heirlooms are typically lower than commercial varieties, but flavor and nutritional qualities more than make up for it. I should write down my compost recipe.......
