Backyard food production is a growing hobby. One of the easiest and most rewarding ways to start is growing tomatoes either in a garden or a pot on the deck. Bill Grainger (Horticulture Program teacher at G.L. Roberts C.V.I.) had his Heritage Tomatoes at our Plant Sale this year. He grows certified organically produced heirloom varieties that came from a local farm and producer in Ontario.
They are very historic in nature and all non-GMO. One of his varieties is called Garden Peach and develops fuzz. Some of his others are Chadwick’s Red Cherry, Brandywine and Red Zebra (that has golden stripes).
Try your hand at growing some Heritage Tomatoes this year. Perhaps you purchased some from Bill Grainger. If not, Heritage Tomato varieties are available at local Garden Centres. I am sure you will enjoy the process and the product.
