Tomato varieties ripening

A few quick pics of some of the tomato varieties ripening right now:
Black Prince heirloom tomato

Homestead heirloom tomato

Mortgage Lifter heirloom tomato

Rutgers heirloom tomato
Not yet ripening are Mr. Stripey, Cherokee Purple, and Marglobe (all heirloom varieties) while I am hoping the German Johnson has finally set a tomato.  One of my neighbors asked me, "Why so many varieties?"  I said I need to find out what works best for both my yard and my style of gardening ... and besides, we have not been able to try most of these until now.

I'll be saving seeds from all of these, of course.
