This year so far is turning out to be heirloom tomato wealthy, providing a nice crop already. Even the big varieties, that did poorly last year, such as Rose, Omar’s Lebanese, Red Brandywine or Amana Orange, are producing very nicely. How is your harvest so far? We are going to host our Summer Seed Exchange on the 27th of August, so please keep the date!
