I’ve always grown tomatoes in my garden and I like unusual varieties. This year I’ve got a bunch of cool tomatoes growing out back. Some are now starting to ripen so it’s getting more exciting.

Growing tomatoes is not as hard as I thought originally, but there are some tricks. I’m going to do a separate post fully on tomato growing tips. Some key ones are pick the sunniest spot in your yard, work on the soil every year including via green cover crops, don’t over-water or over-fertilize, and mulch.

Below I’ve posted pictures I took just this week of some of my favorite unusual varieties. We just had some Lovers Lunch and Berkeley Pink Tye Die for breakfast today and they were amazing.
