Well my tomatoes are finally getting close to full swing, and with that I begin questioning why it is that I grow heirloom varieties.

Sure, the colors are neat, the flavors are amazing and there are just so many different varieties out there. But have I told you that they also tend to crack at the first threat of a raindrop? Any excessive moisture on most heirlooms when they are near ripe is enough to cause them to think a flood may ensue and splits them open.
