Harvests, Tomatoes

I have lots of Sungold cherry tomatoes now (from two plants), and a few ripe New Girl and Orange Blossoms too. Big Beef are ripening fast. The heirlooms are sizing up: Brandywine Sudduth strain, Giant Belgium, Purple Calabash, Box Car Willie, and Mortgage Lifter.

Tomato varieties I’ve lost to Late Blight so far are: Pink Beauty, Cherokee Purple, Opalka, San Marzano, Early Girl and Hillbilly.

Tomorrow I think I’ll check on my recollection of which varieties I have left and take a photo of the best tomato on each plant. I like to keep a record of what they look like.

  • I like the first picture. Very cute.

  • My gnome's job now is to tend to the tomatoes. He's doing a good job of keeping Blight spores out of my little tomato patch next to the house.

  • congrats! toms looks great! My first Brandywine is ripe today (I am in central PA), but I am pulling them out — LB. question – have you tried growing Supersteak? It looks great, and is the least affected by the blight in my plot, so I am thinking of trying it again next year. My other varieties are Roma, Grape, Brandywine, and Black Russian.

  • Like your tomato pictures and varieties. I have grown Sungold tomatoes from a hanging pot and they taste great, many little gold sweet tasting treats.
