Oh, and... CHOCOLATE SPRINKLES FNT HYBRID & MINT JULEP from Tomato Growers Supply Company

I've been really impressed by the vigor of


which I bought from (of course) Tomato Growers Supply Company... It's been producing in my garden since early February (maybe January? This is why I used to keep a blog...). It's very vigorous, productive, the tomatoes seem to ripen reasonably quickly once set... And the flavor of the tomatoes is excellent, not overly sweet. And they look great mixed in with other small-bodied tomatoes. MINT JULEP has done well in my garden, too: Largish for small-bodied tomatoes, it's hard to know when to pick them. (Pick them when they come off the plant without undo tugging, then let them ripen on the countertop a few days.) Very pretty green and yellow... Good flavor, not great.

It's been a while...

I'm still gardening, and this coronavirus pandemic has meant I'm spending more time in the garden than usual. Plums, nectarines, figs, lemons, leeks, tomatoes, blackberries, blueberries, arugula, herbs of all sorts, broccoli and kale........ All that's going on, mostly in the 15'x15'...
