Green Garden Dreams

The Joy of San Diego Vegetable Gardening

Tis the season to plant tomatoes! This is a partial list of what I found at three retail locations.

I had fun exploring the farmer’s market, a nursery, and Home Depot. Did you know that there are said to be over 7500 varieties of tomatoes in the world?!

Most of the following are heirlooms (the links are so you can learn about the variety, or buy seeds).

What I planted this year:
