Yes, we had some tomatoes

This was the best tomato season we've had in three years, though still not as bountiful as in seasons past. We lost our Brandywine plant to the bunchy top virus, a very unusual disease that makes the plant stop growing and the leaves, well, bunch up. Our Cherokee purple produced mediocre fruit. But the chocolate stripes (below) were delicious and our red and black cherries were equally tasty.
Beefy: our chocolate stripe tomatoes tasted the best.
A tomato medley, including cherries and beefsteaks.
This chocolate stripe is ready for its close up!
Japanese oxhearts are great for roasting.
Ugly, but edible. They can't all be beauties.
