I mentioned on another post we tried a different kind of tomato this year, Abraham Lincoln.  Got our second pick this morning,  Just starting to ripen.  Got about 14 cucumbers.  Couple 3 were to big so cut them up for the goats.  Also got about 3/4 of a gallon pail of the round yellow tomato's.  About 3/4" diameter and real good flavor.  Tomato's are slow ripening but look out when the start as they will all want to ripen at the same time.  For size comparison the round black cap is off a rattle can.

Not real strong on flavor.  I use a little sugar on cold sliced tomatoes.  Going to try them this evening with a little salt & pepper and see if that helps.

Had some other tomatoes and bacon on toast this evening.  BLT's without the L :wave:   We have found that you don't want to wait for full vine ripening of the Abe L.'s as they will start to split.  Another thing with them is they have a large indention where the stem attaches and on the bottom so the end slices have a hole in the center.  Guess that don't make no difference as they get chomped up when they are ate.  Just looks.

I had never heard of that variety, had to look them up.  Apparently they get huge and was called the  "Giant of all Tomatoes" back in 1923.  Cool!!

Mild with slight acidity, sounds like a winner for people who have trouble with more acidy tomatoes.
