Potato Leaf

With all the heat we've had in June this year, the tomatoes are motoring right along. Here's Spencer, who's turning 5 next week, showing just how big the leaves of the 'Stupice' variety can get. 
Many heirloom tomato plants are referred to as 'potato leaved' because their leaves look like the leaves of potato plants.   This extra early, cold-tolerant tomato was bred in the Czech Republic, and has a  wonderful, low-acid flavour.
