Tomatoes

Here is the most popular vegetable grown in American gardens. I love the variety of tomatoes available to us gardeners by seed. It’s nice to see growers now responding to the demand for more flavorful tomatoes available by plants. I’ve seen ‘Brandywine’ and ‘Cherokee Purple’ plants at local building supply stores. But you’ve got to at least visit the websites of these seed suppliers for mouth-watering selections:

http://www.johnnyseeds.com Full of color and detailed growing information. Many flowers too. Widest variety of sunflowers I’ve seen.

http://www.seedsofchange.com All organically-grown seed source. See Burbank Red Slicing tomato, bred by Luther Burbank…it is packed with amino acids.

http://www.tomatogrowers.com Fort Myers, Florida-based company with a huge range of tomatoes and peppers.
