Roma Tomatoes

Started twenty new Roma tomatoes from seed today.  Lord willing, we should have some nice tasting paste type tomatoes to make spaghetti sauce with this fall.  The Roma's take about 75-90 days to ripen.  They are an determinate vine.  That means the fruits become ripe at around the same time.  Which is good when your trying to do your canning all in one fell swoop.

Roma's are an open pollinated variety, which means you can save their seed for next year.  Here is a website dedicated to information about the Roma tomato:  www.roma-tomato.com

Here is a recipe for tomato-basil soup:  http://dinnercoop.cs.cmu.edu/dinnercoop/Recipes/karen/TomatoBasilSoup.html

Hope everyone has a great Father's Day weekend!
