Heirloom Vegetables

For those of you keen to grow your own salads this summer head along to the Orange Farmer’s Markets on the second Saturday of the month and stock up on some plants for your garden. I picked up some lettuce and 2 heirloom tomato varieties for about $7 last Saturday – this is a total bargain assuming everything survives and bears fruit!

Lettuce & tomatoes at the front

I got some green zebra tomatoes which look exactly as the name describes and also some Black Negra heirloom tomatoes. When this is combined with the yellow and red Tumbling Tom cherry tomatoes I have already planted we should be in for some really colourful salads this summer.
