I am happy to report our kitchen is being taken over by tomatoes from the garden. We have lived in Florida for 10 years and can attest to the fact that the worst soil in the nation is here. Our Christmas present to each other last year, a real vegetable garden! I perused the web and found a tomato seed site, All I wanted was Creole Tomato seeds to try to copy what I grew up with in Lousiana. We started the seeds in January in little peat forward 6 months, drought, wind, freezes, and torrential rains later and we have an assortment of tomatoes. They took 10 years to grow, but "om om."


  1. I will attest to the fact that there is *no* tomato that can be bought anywhere in Florida that tastes *anything* like what you can grow! (Unless the horn worms get them first!)
    Congrats! --That's no easy feat here in scorching, sandy FLA!

  2. That is fantastic news!
    I love the smell of tomatoes it brigs back flood of memories. My great grand mother said that her secret to living a long life was tomatoes. She used to make cream tomatoes and have them with biscuits every day.
