Here's a picture (click to enlarge) of me behind my beloved tomato garden. I have been preparing the soil for the last two weeks and finally introduced the first tomato plants this evening. I planted seven plants consisting of five varieties (Mr. America, Grape, Brandywine, (2)Park's Whopper, and (2)Celebrity). My father will be giving me five more plants which are called "Italian Tomatoes" because they are supposed to have come from the old country and kept in circulation for several decades by my Dad's buddies and him. My final plan is to have 12 tomato plants.
