More Black Krims, and More Watering!

We have really been enjoying the Black Krim tomatoes. It may be my new favorite tomato. The Brandywines are coming on strong. I think they are determined to remind me why they are the current favorite. Here is a good picture to show the Blak Krim's unique look:

Here is a bowl of Black Krim slices next to a bowl of a sliced up Early Girl. Notice the drastic difference in color.

The vegetable garden is looking good again because we have been watering it day and night:

Unfortunately, now that the garden plants are greener and healthier than the surrounding plants, the deer are visiting!

I guess that's what gardening is - solving one problem after another. Why do we do it to ourselves? Oh yeah, its to get to see the beauty and eat the bounty!



marc - as I've said before, I'm a huge tomato fan but for some reason I just can't get use to seeing those black krims. The fist time I ever heard of them was when you first posted them on your blog and at first glance, I thought the post was going to be about something horrible that was infecting and destroying your tomatoes. I want to love these tomatoes too...


I'll admit, I've never tried the Black Krims, and like Gina, I'm not sure I will because of the color. But if they are your favorite, they must be good, so maybe I'll try them next year.

Keep on waterin'!
