Tomatoes in Squash Leaf 

Editor-in-Chief Cheryl Long recently flooded the MOTHER EARTH NEWS office with her first harvest of heirloom tomatoes. Round and oval, tiny and monstrous tomatoes tumbled out of five gallon buckets and overflowed from bowls. Two of us spent a few hours in the garden photographing this bountiful, colorful harvest.

Here are some of our favorite shots:

Our three sisters garden provided a nice green backdrop to contrast with the bright colors of the tomatoes.

They are not the same worm here in NC.

Beautiful harvest but remember everytime you fill a tomato horn worm you are killing a black swallowtail butterfly. We always plant a couple of plants and some fennel away from the field and we move them onto those plants as we really love the butterflies.

Yum!!! Our harvest is slow, quite a bit behind yours. I've taken a little different tech type approach including grabbing an e-book to help me this year. You can see info here http://goo.gl/wXVqr . So far, we've enjoyed a couple Cherokee Purples (first time growing these).
