Sunny Garden Tomatoes

Heirloom_Tomatoes-1

Sunny Garden Tomatoes will be joining us at the Farmer’s Market this weekend selling a wide variety of heirloom tomato plants.

The tomatoes are “non-certified organic”, non-GMO, non-hybrid.  They use homemade compost, and local seaweed in their potting soil mix.  This results in a strong & hearty plant that is more pest-resistant and produces a more flavorful fruit.

11 Heirloom Tomato varieties available:

Yellow Pear Cherry – Sweet heavy producer – indeterminate (produces until frost)

Sungold – Sweet cherry, heavy producer – indeterminate (produces until frost)

Boxcar Willy (red) – Red slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Abe Lincoln (red) – Red slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Lg Red Cherry Plum – Plum shaped large red cherry – indeterminate (produces until frost)

Beefsteak – Red slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Brandywine – Very flavorful, Red slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Cherokee Purple – Purple slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Roma – Red slicing or Sauce tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

Big Rainbow – Multicolor red, yellow, pink, slicing tomato, determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

 San Marsano – Famous Italian sauce tomato, Red determinate (larger fruit, 1 heavy harvest)

 5 for $25 – Mix and match!
3 for $20 – Small garden
1 for $8 -Great for beginners or experimentation – it’s fun!

 Orders/quantities can be ordered for following week if desired.

Generally, cherry tomatoes provide more small fruit throughout the growing season, whereas slicing tomatoes ripen all in the same month, then die off.

Nothing is nicer than a multicolored bowl of tomato salad with fresh olive oil, balsamic or red wine vinegar, sea salt, and basil or oregano! Another favorite is toasted sourdough bread slathered with mayo and slices of fresh garden tomatoes!

{Recipe} Heirloom Tomato Guacamole Salad

Heirloom Tomato Guacamole Salad

If you happened to stop by the Clark Farms booth at the market on Sunday, you most likely saw this crate filled with gorgeous heirloom tomatoes.

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of these, you would know that they tasted just as good as they looked.

The best thing about fresh local produce is that you don’t need to do much to enjoy the amazing flavors.  These tomatoes are sweet and flavorful and could probably even be eaten by themselves.

For lunch this afternoon I sliced up the tomato, sprinkled it with sea salt and fresh black pepper and topped it off with some guacamole and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  If you don’t have any guacamole on hand, it would be just as good with sliced avocado or mozzarella cheese.

Enjoy!
