Mini Heirloom Tomatoes

May 25, 2011

I love grape tomatoes and I love heirloom tomatoes.  So, you can imagine my delight when I saw these mini heirloom tomatoes at Trader Joe’s.  Oh, Trader Joe’s, you always know just what I need.  I didn’t even know that heirloom tomatoes came in the mini variety.  I know, it’s pathetic that I’m this excited about tomatoes! 

By the way, do you know why heirloom tomatoes always cost so much more than the other varieties?  I’m not sure, but I can guess.  One year I tried to grow heirloom tomatoes.  While all my other plants thrived, the heirloom plant was a stick with a few leaves here and there.  It did yield two tomatoes – two lovely, beautiful tomatoes.  So, I think those plants just grow fewer tomatoes.
