We tasted our first Black Krim; it was small and scarred but the flavor was excellent. We will wait to taste a few more before we decide to grow it again.

Beautiful tomato Paul!

Arlene, that first tomato always tastes delicious regardless of how it looks!

My goodness! That's one humongous tomato! About the biggest tomatoes we can grow here (because of the dry heat) is an Early Girl. Sweet 100s - that sort of mater - grow best here. So of course, we all really, really want to grow are those gorgeous giants (anything over about 4 oz is a giant by Arizona standards).

Nice one, Paul. I was out at the farm this morning. NOT a pretty picture. Too wet so the green beans have slowed down.

Many tomatoes split before they can ripen. I put new batteries in my camera before going out and found out they were dead. I am off to clean & pack up beans. Will photo tomatoes after I have washed them. Grumbling

Went out and picked off everything I could; too many splits and bugs attacking.

You wouldn't be if you saw them up close. You can be jealous of the ones at the CA house; I'm even jealous of those but they don't even hold a candle to Paul's.
