Mini Heirloom Tomatoes
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.
