Heirlooms of High Summer

Seeds were given by an acquaintance to my Grandpa to then to me. An unknown heirloom tomato.
It may be a local heirloom, kept for generations but it is similar to Brandywine or Millionaire
They are mammoth in size (this is nothing near the biggest I've seen), irregular in shape, and slightly pink.
The best tasting tomato I've had!

Awaiting my Gem Glass Corn and mighty excited about it.
Although they are beautiful, these decorative corns are edible just as you'd eat sweet corn,
and it can be dried and popped for popcorn too.
I'll have to try it all ways!
