The seed catalogues have been flooding my mailbox, and I am dreaming about tomatoes from the garden. This Kellog's Breakfast was one of my favorites last year. The texture was meaty and juicy, and the flavor just superb. I grew quite a few tomatoes, and the winners for me were: Kellog's Breakfast, Aunt Ruby's German Green, German Johnson, and Early Girl. I prefer to grow heirlooms, but Early Girl opened my mind a bit. One plant gave me enough tomatoes for several batches each of roasted tomato sauce, different types of salsa, chopped tomatoes and basil, and more. Most importantly, the tomatoes tasted great. I am sure the record heat prevented some of the tomatoes from living up to their full potential. Hopefully it will be a bit cooler this year.
