After many successful years of growing tomatoes, cukes, and onions, I decided to add some pumpkins and gourds to the mix as well. But let's talk about tomatoes.
Ah yes, tomatoes. . .how I love thee. Every year I start my plants from seeds. I always plant about 4 "large" variety plants, my favorite being the beefsteak. And I also plant about 4 of the "small" variety such as cherry, grape, or roma. This year when I was looking at the seed packets, I found a small variety called currant. Now, I know the name alone should have tipped me off. I mean currants are berries, so how big could this little gems be, right?

Here's a fun picture just to compare the size:
