This basket is representative of our tomato and tomatillo harvests this year. We started out early in the spring with countless seed varieties-- heirlooms, romas, cherries-- but due to our own negligence and the turmoil of moving into our house, what we ended up with is three tomatillo plants and three cherry tomato plants. I'd like to say the red tomatoes are wonderful, the best we've ever tasted, the Reason We Garden, but they are okay. Once you get them in a salad they taste more like the vinegar they are dressed with then the tomatoes themselves. Oh well. There's always next year.
