is admitting you have a problem. Well....I have a problem. A tomato problem. First it started with wanting romas in addition to the slicing tomatoes. Then I found a few Lemon Boys that I found at a good price and had the room for (mentioned in an earlier post) and then it got even worse when I found 2 very well developed Green Zebra tomatoes for 25 cents a piece! They were in 3" pots and I just couldn't say no. Did I need them? Absolutely not, but a deal like that? How could I pass that up?!
I somehow managed to avoid the black tomato craziness, but I did look pretty hard at the Cherokee purples that I found next to them for the same price. Given that they are prone to cracking, and the description of their flavor it didn't really appeal to me like the Green Zebras did. So now I've got yellow beefsteaks, green zebras, and lots of slicing and roma tomatoes. I needed another tomato plant like I needed a hole in the head, but whats done is done.
