Know thine heirloom tomatoes

Spencer on taste-testing duty in the cherry tomato house.
What a great year for tomatoes! Hot, dry weather all summer long was hard on a lot of crops, but our tomatoes were in heaven! Some of our heirlooms this year include (from right to left) Yellow brandywine, brandywine, black brandywine, red zebra, black cherry, purple calabash, glacier and gilbertie paste. (We've renamed it the gilbertie griller, since it is absolutely the best tomato to roast on the barbeque.)
