The tomato season is nearly over at my house. It has been a mixed year. The stink bugs, leaf-footed bugs and tomato horn worms have taken care of a good number of the crop, as usual. However, this year I grew a new to my garden tomato, Black Krim, and I have to say I have not been disappointed.
For once the fruit looks almost as good as the one on the seed package and definitely worth growing for flavor and size. The only disappointment has been the number of fruit but with the growers now coming out with grafted tomatoes next year's crop may be more vigorous. I'm certainly going to have a go at grafting myself. When you start from seed there are always more plants than you need and why not experiment. For now we are just going to enjoy these in an insalata caprese salad......again!
