Default Hello Midwesteners!

Hi there Midwestern Tomato Growers! I am wondering -- anything in particular you think grows better in the Midwest than other varieties? I think it's hard to predict what kind of weather we'll be dealing with. So, how do you plan for what will grow best 'round here? I remember years ago when, we were in a different house, we opened the pool and that summer was so cool we never swam in it that whole year. This year we here in the Midwest have had brutally hot weather with little rain. Or, like tonight, it's very humid after a heavy rain (so humid the windows are fogged up).

So - how do you decide what to grow? I'm new to this tomato-growing game. I am trying many varieties this year but no results thus far for me to know what I think might be good to grow in this area.
