Sandra that was just great! I clicked on' like this blog' before I'd even read it!
I've grown some toms myself this year with some success & I'm really interested in all the different kinds.
Your pics are a great way of seeing how they all turn out & I can't believe that huge one! Fabulous!
The Amish gold might be what I have grown...I lost the label ... & the pepolino are like the ones I buy in the supermarket for an exhorbitant price!
As for the stripey one...didn't know you could get such a thing!
Great blog..thank you very much for all that info...I'll definitely try those varieties next year.
