When it comes to heirloom beefsteak tomatoes, there's an almost endless number of varieties that can be grown. Sure, Brandywine and Cherokee tomatoes tend to lead the pack in popularity, but that doesn't exactly translate to them being the superior heirlooms. All it means is that there's a bunch of lesser known varieties that have yet to be boasted about! With that said, I'd like to share a little information on one variety that has yet to gain the attention it deserves. The Pleated Zapotec Tomato!
Now that we're roughly half way through October, the garden is starting to dwindle down to its bare minimum. There's carrots, broccoli rabe, scallions and some perennials left, but that's about all. In this update, I'll show the current state of the garden as well as catch up on the rest of the harvests from the season!
