Beautiful Black Krims

7 Jul

We recently picked the first of our black krim tomatoes. This deep-hued heirloom variety has a much more assertive flavor—more tart, acidic, and bright—than a regular tomato. They’re delicious and simply gorgeous.

The rest of the garden is doing gangbusters. I’ve already spent many hours this summer chopping tomatoes and making marinara sauce. Here are some shots of the garden taken yesterday afternoon. It’s come a long way.

Romas…

Lemon boys…

Our largest tomato plant, which is taller than I am (I’m 5’7”) and long-ago outgrew its tomato cage…

Corn…

and our blackberry bush…
