Garden Plan: Tomatoes

We're back to dreaming about gardening again.
and guess what? it's suppost to go up to *4* degrees tomorrow! (celcius)
I phoned Stokes yeserday and ordered a catalog, and we're waiting
to hear back about a plot of landing we're looking to rent.
Our yard just isn't big enough this year for all the stuff I want to try..
Black Sea Man Tomato 10 Seeds - Heirloom
Black Sea Man Tomatoes, Heirloom.
Small plants with medium-sized deep brown fruits, rich flavor. Looks incredibly odd when blanched and peeled, revealing skeleton-like veins under the skin. Potato leaf, but determinate, 75 days from transplant

Mr. Stripey
  ...unusually small leaves and a mix of a yellow and red color that can fool some growers into thinking they are picking an unripe tomato. may be considered a "beefsteak". Like other heirlooms, Mr. Stripey has an appearance that differs considerably from other tomatoes...generally somewhat more yellow near the stem and more red towards its underside, with gentle stripes of red and yellow blending into each other along the sides. This coloration may extend into the interior of the fruit, which tends to be more yellow than red.
...fully ripe the taste will be surprisingly sweet and mild, superior to most store bought varieties...when fully ripe is pleasingly sweet when sliced raw - excellent for hors de ouvres...

Sweet Million
Early maturing hybrid cherry type tomato. Clusters of tiny fruit are well rounded, deep red in colour with a delicious sweet flavour. Tolerance to cracking and good holding qualities. Indeterminate plants grow tall and require support. Maturity is 60 days from transplanting

Early Girl Hybrid Tomato 45 Seeds- Blemish Free Skin!
Early Girl
Bears heavy crops extremely early and continues longer than most varieties. Matures in 59 days. Large clusters of 5 oz. fruits. Globe to slightly flattened shape. Bright red and meaty with a lot of flavor and aroma. Indeterminate. get seeds {here}
 we had really good luck with this type last year!

so far, that's all the types I've chosen for tomatoes! I'll be doing more posts on cucumbers, beans, peas and flowers!
*unless other wise stated/linked, seeds are available for order with Stokes.
