Fantastic Tomatoes

I can’t grow tomatoes very well here at 27th Street. Our place is shaded by several mature trees, and while there is enough sun for some vegetables, my attempts at tomatoes have been grim. It’s too bad because I LOVE homegrown tomatoes.

My friend Jennifer Arnott grows heirloom tomatoes and they are wonderfully flavourful. Jennifer was over yesterday taping Episode 2 of the 27th Street Podcast. That’s right folks, we’ll be talking tomatoes.

IMG_4157This tomato is not only oversized. It is also juicy and delicious. Jennifer generously brought us some samples of this season’s yield. Here tomatoes will continue to fruit right to the first frost. This morning Tuffy P and I enjoyed a simple breakfast of tomatoes on toast.

IMG_4158Wow, super-delicious.

On Episode 2 of the 27th Street Podcast, Jennifer will give us some tomato tips and as well will discuss some of her fave unique perennials. Watch for it coming soon, and also be sure to visit Jennifer’s blog.


  1. Yay, I’m so glad to see that the giant tomato had a good interior–thanks for sharing! Also, thanks again for the opportunity to talk tomatoes, one of my favourite subjects, on the 27th street podcast.

    • Yes, it’s in great shape. That’s a lot of tomato! Wonderfully delicious.
      Thanks for guesting on the podcast Jennifer! I’m sure listeners will enjoy the interview.
