Tomato Varieties
GrushovkaTomatodirt.com says, “Heirloom, determinate, pink and egg-shaped (3 inches long). Originated in Siberia. Excellent variety for canning.” I got these instead of romas because the plants looked so healthy!
Black KrimTomatofest.com says, “Originally from the Isle of Krim on the Black Sea in the former Soviet Union. This rare, and outstanding tomato yields 3-4″ slightly flattened dark-red (mahogany-colored) slightly maroon, beefsteak tomatoes with deep green shoulders. Green gel around seeds. Fantastic, intense, slightly salty taste (which is great for those not wanting to add salt to their tomatoes). Perfect choice for slicing, salads and cooking.”
BrandywineBurpee.com says “Brandywine, which dates back to 1885, is the heirloom tomato standard. One taste and you’ll be enchanted by its superb flavor and luscious shade of red-pink. The large, beefsteak-shaped fruits grow on unusually upright, potato-leaved plants. The fruits set one or two per cluster and ripen late—and are worth the wait.”
Sugary cherryTomatofest.com says “1-inch, brilliant pinkish-red, oval-shaped cherry tomatoes with a pointed blossom end. Huge amounts of tomatoes produced in clusters with very sweet flavors. Great for good snacking, salads or adding to culinary dishes.”

Pepper varieties
Cayenne and Jalapeno – I think these speak for themselves. Mmmmm!
