Nothing says summer like fresh tomatoes from the garden. Albeit 70 plants may be more than necessary. I admit I got a bit carried away. I couldn't resist one more variety, Marmande, Brandywine, Purple Cherokee, Black Krim, German Stripe and another 10 varieties. Now that they are ripening we have made 20 qts of sauce, and more will be jarred, chopped into bruschetta, and gobbled right off the vine. They are luscious, but it looks like the creature from the movie,"Little Shop of Horror"s in our garden. We will have to cut back next year and find a better way to support them. One advantage of gardening is each year you can start again and try to fix the mistakes from the year before.
