The ones planted above were Beefsteak, Black Cherry, Brandywine and Cherokee Purple. I must say the Cherokee Purple are the most vigorous by far. I had such high hopes for the Brandywine and slotted several plants for this year's garden, but from what I've been reading recently, whereas yes, the taste is superb, the production is slim to none. Maybe 2-3 tomatoes per plant and I can't waste space on that. Well, shoot.
I think then I'll just put the one in to test it out and put my luck into some thing more productive. You know what that means! More seeds!!!
I got a Yellow Pear tomato (the tomato that started it all. I just love them, although I've heard others say they're tasteless, they're the perfect tomato for me to take to snack on. I just love them. I also got some Big Momma ones that are supposed to be good sauce making tomatoes and I'd like to give that a try. EEEH, I ordered some steak sandwich, too, but I'm not sure if I'll try those this year since I already have the beefsteak in. We'll see. The cantaloupe is supposed to be a true bush variety which will be interesting. They will be started in a few weeks.
I put six of the Big Mommas to start like the rest of them, but I just put the yellow pear in generic pots outside and hopefully they'll germinate when their time is right. I'm not going to stress overly much about those since I can easily get them as transplants if these don't work out.
It's just so good to see green again, isn't it, folks. I'm ready for the jungle!
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
