2015 has been a darn good year for heirloom tomatoes. So far, I’ve harvested over 60 pounds from my seven plants. I’ve made tomato soup, marinara sauce, BLTs, and countless caprese salads. And I’ve loved every bite. In fact, not only are my heirloom tomatoes particularly prolific this year, they’re also extra beautiful! I love to grow multiple colors of tomatoes, not just for the beauty they add to the garden and kitchen, but also for the varied nutritional content their pigments introduce.

Come on, let’s see those heirloom tomatoes. Add your pictures to the comment section at the bottom of this post.
