Beaver Lodge Slicer grows well in containers and is the earliest tomato I grow, it also taste very good. New Big Dwarf is another good one for containers.

I am trying Sophie's choice this year, how does Sophies Choice compare to Beaver Lodge Slicer?

I guess I am in kind of a rut... I grow pretty much the same varieties every year:

Black Krim
Lemon Boy
Cheroke Purple
Health Kick Roma
Green Zebra
Early Girl
Black Cherry
White Cherry
Yellow Pear

I will usually try 5 or 6 others, whatever I happen to come across at the local garden centers. I wanted to try some Karen Oliver varieties, but I couldn't find any.

For the First Time, I am decorating with Red Robin Tomato Plants all over the Front Market Place overlooking Fort Monroe in my Front Market. I put these Red Robins Tomato Plants in the arms of my Angel Statues and everywhere, in the Front Market, Amen!!
