Early July is not too late to plant tomatoes in the vegetable garden to insure that your table will be full of fresh tomatoes throughout the season until November or frost.
Some of my favorite tomatoes include ‘Cherokee Purple’ (the sweetest tasting), ‘Green Zebra’ (green and white flesh), ‘Yellow Pear’, ‘Moby Grape’ (long lasting), ‘Super Steak’ (weight up to 6 lbs.), ‘Yellow Striped German’ (orange and yellow flesh), ‘Mr. Stripey’ (red and white flesh), and ‘Garden Peach’ (looks and feels like a peach).
There is nothing more attractive than an array of sliced tomatoes of 7 different varieties that will give you a multitude of flavors, colors, shapes, and sizes
To provide a steady supply of other vegetables through the growing season, continue to plant each month small amounts of beans, Swiss chard, beets, radishes, and squash. Most seed varieties will give you time frames from plants to harvest.
