Tomato Fireworks Part II

It is Independence day weekend and the tomatoes are finally ripening in the Victory Garden. The Tomatomania seedlings (obviously seedlings no more) are beginning to provide a bounty! This weekend's barbecues will include the following delectable offerings!

From left to right, Top row: Marianna's Peace, Pink Berkeley Tie-Die, Haley's Purple Comet
From left to right, Bottom Row: Pickling cucumber, Black Pearl, Black Trifle
Haley's Purple Comment, Large-leaf (Potato Leaf variety) with small, dark red fruit.
My very prolific Cherokee Purple, a favorite heirloom of home tomato growers.
Black Trifles, small yet delectable
My volunteers are Black Pearls - YUM!
Pink Berkeley Tie-Die looks a little sickly, but it is producing well.
Marianna's Peace - my absolute favorite! I need to do some more research on it.
