A correction sort of, maybe.....


I was continually taking shots of my tomatoes and something like a light bulb turned on in my little brain.  I have been calling all of my tomatoes Roma tomatoes.  When I started my own plants I planted two smaller varieties.  One variety was leftover Roma seeds that I planted, but I do now remember that I had a heritage small tomato from Seed Savers that was in the shape of a pear.



You can see in some of these tomatoes that they are pear shaped and some are Roma's.

Either way they taste very good and I am still eating them for lunch everyday at school.  They seem to ripen on the counter quite well and they are going to last for a few weeks longer.

I am headed to the farm again today after school to cut down a few more smaller trees. I plan to bring some of the wood back home to use in the fireplace.  It will need to dry out a lot but the smaller stuff may burn anyway.



I am an aid today for a number of special education students.  I get to visit some of the rooms that I had subbed in before to see how the regular teacher does their job.

Thanks for stopping by..........

I'll tell John about the pear shaped tomatoes. He might enjoy growing those next year.
The close-ups of your zinnias are amazing. Almost looks like a crown in the center of each flower.
Have a safe afternoon.

Yes indeed you do have both Roma's and pears. Both are nice for paste, all the pears are nice fresh too.

Grade 7/8 today - not a bad day at all. Excellent EA in the class with me.

We used to grow a variety called Yellow pear that was really tasty..I bet your heritage seeds are from that same strain..except yours are red. Nice looking Zinnia heads:)
