When We're Not Making Kitchens Beautiful, We're Growing Blue Ribbon Tomatoes!

Fall, 2011: When we need a break from refacing and finishing kitchen cabinets we play in our garden. And this year it appears to have paid off!

Despite the wet weather this summer we still managed to grow tomatoes worthy of eating, and a few even made it into the Open Vegetable Division at the Hunterdon County 4H Fair.

And we won a blue ribbon for Three Biggest Tomatoes on a Plate. A paper plate. Together these babies weighed in at over six pounds of tomato goodness.


The varieties we submitted were a German Strawberry, a Hawaiian Pineapple, and a Mexico tomato. Our seedlings came from Cross Country Nurseries in Rosemont, NJ. They have hundreds of seedling varieties, including pepper, eggplant, and basil.
