This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Sliced yellow Brandywine tomato

I was just reading some history on this variety, which apparently is unrelated to the Brandywine variety. It is described as "a large yellow beefsteak type tomato with an excellent flavor and a creamy texture that reaches weights from 1 to 2 pounds. These nice yellow tomatoes are produced in adequate numbers upon an indeterminate vine which features potato type leaves". It was tasty. The creamy texture is very pronounced. For me, this variety (and my real Brandywine's) produced about 3-4 tomatoes per 10 foot plant. Compared with about 15 or so on my Early Girl's and Beefsteaks.

Solanum lycopersicum
