zapotec tomato

This week, I finally started harvesting my Zapotec heirloom tomatoes (which I pronounce zap-attack!!).  If you can't tell from the picture, these tomatoes turn pink when they are ripe and have a crazy fun shape to them.  I grew these babies from seed and transplanted them in early May, after we created the beds at the community garden.  I purchased the seeds in early spring from Gayla Trail's Etsy shop, and I loved feeling connected to one of my gardening heroes by growing seeds that had been part of tomatoes she had in her own garden!  

I felt so proud to pick my first tomato.  I had never grown anything else as big or delicious from seed before (all my other tomato plants were transplants).  My budding gardening skills are confirmed!  Now, what am I going to do with all of these tomatoes?  I guess it's time to test out my budding canning skills!  More exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Friday!!
