Coming right along

So I cleaned up the area near the house where I normally have peas. The groundhog cleaned out the peas for me - what a helpful fellow. In their place I put 5 tomato plants - Super Beefsteak, Cherokee Purple, roma, Tigerella, and Black Krim. I had tomatoes there one year before and they did pretty well.

I also have 19 spots out in the fenced in garden tomato'd up.

  • 2 Super Beefsteak
  • 2 Taxi
  • 1 San Marzano
  • 3 Rutgers
  • 1 Brandywine
  • 4 Sungold
  • 1 Cherokee Purple
  • 2 Fourth of July
  • 1 Tigerella
  • 2 MYSTERY! - these sprang up from last year's dirt
I also have a couple buckets ready to receive tomato plants. I'm going to start some Yellow Pear (a cherry variety) from seed, with hope of getting something before they die off. I'm very disappointed that Black Cherry didn't come up (thanks kitty). Next year they're back in the rotation. So all told I have 40 plants in 12 varieties.

These pictures are a bit outdated, I need to get a fresh crop of pictures. See what I did there? "crop"?
