  1. Ha! I love the "Lets move beyond tomatoes" sentiment.

  2. Heh,

    I figured someone would. It seems whenever we talk about heirlooms everyone seems to focus on tomatoes.

  3. How about heirloom melons? The sun and stars melon has a very interesting story...

  4. That's because tomatoes rule! Is this meant to include heirloom flowers, too?

  5. The Yarden, Heirloom melons work.

    Monica, Flowers work too. Any heirloom that gets us thinking about more than just tomatoes when someone says "heirloom."
