My hubby and I bought some heirloom tomato seeds called "Mortgage Lifter". Of course, the name is what caught my eye at the store. Mortgage Lifters are supposed to be BIG tomatoes.
I was curious about the name and looked it up. It seems that back in the 1930s a guy named "Radiator Charlie" developed this tomato and sold them for $1.00 each, which was a lot in the 30s. He was able to pay off his mortgage by selling the tomatoes. His mortgage was about $6,000.00
I don't expect that growing some of our own vegetables will save us as much money as Radiator Charlie made, but it will be tasty and frugal.
In a couple of months I hope to being making sandwiches from these:
