I am still in Lexington, Kentucky, ( the horse capital of the world) struggling with the 93 degree temperatures outside and then dealing with the 60 degree temperatures inside!! But thoroughly enjoying this beautiful bluegrass state. Yesterday, while driving through Somerset i stopped at a roadside vegetable stand and purchased some Georgia peaches (they were the juiciest i have ever had) and some heirloom tomatoes. I have to apologize for the poor quality of the photo,it really doesn't do justice to this delicious tomato. This Old German Stripe Heirloom Tomato is locally grown and a 75 day tomato. It is a Mennonite heirloom tomato that is also very popular in the Ozark Region (Arkansas). It is a yellow fruit with red spots, speckles and splotches.This tomato was so sweet , what more can I say...try one .
