First Harvest

My tomatoes got a slow start this spring, so I’m only just now getting some ripe fruits to harvest.

These are a mystery variety of Roma that I got from a fellow student of Krav Maga last fall. Mike had a bumper crop of tomatoes and peppers, so he brought in several bags to share. When I asked him what variety of tomatoes these were, he told me they were “romaine” tomatoes. So, when I saved the seeds from the tomatoes he shared, I labeled them as “Mike’s Romaine” Roma tomatoes.

Alas, the bell peppers he shared with the dojo must have been a hybrid variety, because the seeds I saved from those failed to germinate. I historically haven’t had good luck with peppers overall, though, so I can’t be sure…
