The Striped German is an heirloom that is rated as one of the best tasting tomatoes.
Nothing says summer like a fresh home grown tomato sandwiches. I like mine several ways. Simple toast, real mayo, lightly salted for me mostly. Sometimes with bacon & lettuce.
The "cook" will take stale french bread or old bread, cube them up & season them to make croutons to make a tomato sandwich salad. I like mine with a lot of Super Sweet 100 cherry & Yellow Pear tomatoes. Use whatever salad fixins you prefer but add the croutons at the last minute. I don't like soggy bread.
There's a reason they're called Super Sweet 100 & yes, they're really sweet & delicious.
Top left in the garden hod are the Striped German. Bottom left is another highly rated heirloom called Japanese Black Trifele. In the middle of the Super Sweet 100 & Yellow Pear is a Better Boy. The cucumber is a Sweet Success from our second planting as the first cucumbers are on their last legs.
Mild winters in LA allow us to grow vegetables year round. This is our first seedlings of broccoli & romanesco seen below.
HOMEGROWN TOMATOES, WHAT'D LIFE BE WITHOUT HOMEGROWN TOMATOES?
MY WIFE BOUGHT A "PANINI" SANDWICH GRILL, AND MAN, I AM ADDICTED. I REMEMBER DOWN IN KEY WEST, ALMOST EVERY CORNER WOULD HAVE A CUBAN SANDWICH SHOP , AND THEY HAD A SIMILAR HOT PRESS CONTRAPTION TO TOAST THE BREAD.
