After a bit of cleaning in the kitchen, FH and I went out for a picnic lunch in the park and then began seriously looking for heirloom tomato plants.

We found two different heirlooms, different from the ones we enjoyed last year. Along with a regular Roma hybrid, we brought home a Pink Brandywine and a Mr. Stripey. FH found some heirloom French carrot seeds as well. And I convinced him to get four different chile plants and some bush beans.

FH bought some pansys and tulips for me. Everything is planted now and we're back inside relaxing.

Castor and Pollux were "backseat gardening" through the screen door.

Hmm. I really need to get my garden going. Thanks for the reminder.

Good luck with yer' 'maters!

BTW, currently having rather large tornado producing storm. System should find you tomorrow or the next day. Enjoy!

Don't forget to show us more pictures when it's all growing! Must confess I'm much better at mini gardening than real life gardening!

It's that time of year! Rick got me a few organic, heirloom tomatoes, too -- to go with his Big Boys and Early Girls, which never do as well. He won't give up on what he liked as a kid in NE, though. He is stubborn (I know where Brian gets in from!).

We just bought tomato plants this weekend too, pansies and dahlia bulbs etc, so nice to spend time in the garden. Heirloom tomato plants sound wonderful.
Mini Hugs, Jean

How/where do you find heirloom varieties of tomatoes?
