Excuses aside, here is what I have to report - the garden is flourishing! Tomatoes are my main crop, followed by peppers, then peas, zucchini, cucumbers, and basil.
For tomatoes, I'm growing:
- Yellow pear (one of my favorites)
- Black cherry
- Amish paste
- San Marzano
- Yellow boy
I think that is it.
I planted them outside on April 14th, just a wee early.
By May 5th, they were a little bigger and I put up the first line of the trellis.
I left for vacation on the 11th and returned the 17th. This is what I came home to!
Yellow pear, almost 3' tall already.
I look forward to posting lots of recipes in the very near future.
Do you have any suggestions for tomato varieties for me to try next year?
