No matter how much I enjoy preparing the Thanksgiving Feast, I always get to a point when I become a little overwhelmed and I have to take a bit of a break. The best place for me to reinvigorate and regroup is outside in the fresh air. Taking a stroll through the garden yesterday I just happened to find an unexpected tasty treat on one of my last tomato plants.
It’s not the most beautiful or as large as the fruit I picked earlier in the season, but I was still overjoyed to discover this Pink Berkeley Tie Dye peeking out at me. Elated, I ran into the house to show and share with the family. That small tomato went a long way. It was an unexpected gift from nature – a surprise that certainly brought a smile to my face. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean so much.
Pink Berkeley Tie Dye is a beautiful port wine colored beefsteak tomato with metallic green stripes. It produces mid-early and has a very sweet, rich flavor. It’s available both as a conventional plant at various seedling sales in the Spring and as a graft from Garden Life.
