:lol: that just makes me smile :()

Now, did you get that canner you were talking about last year? Start stocking up canning jars, lids, and other processing equipment, and don't forget to clear a big space in your pantry. You may need to build a second one exclusively for preserved produce from your garden. You are going to need it. :wink:

Re: Another view of my toamto forest.

Amazing...I have a few questions:

1. How many actual plants are in your garden?

2. Looks like you're using high round wire mesh cages for some? Are they all in those cages?

3. How tall are they?

4. and where in the US are you?

Thanks

Thanks RBG

Apple it makes me smile as well. You remember last year was ugly for me. I did get that canner I even have some tomatoes from last year in the freezer not sure if I will use them or not they were not blanched. But that is for another thread.


davefromwestchester I have about 30 plants, I think 12 variety's. I have another garden on the other side of my yard that has nine plants in it. I have cages around as many as I had cages for the rest are a mix and match style of stakes and string. The cages (concrete reinforcing wire or CRW) are 5 foot cut at, I believe 12 squares for roughly a 24 inch width.
And as DDF stated I'm near St Louis in Mo.

The fruit setting is great I have a LOT of green toms out there. I have been picking for a 3-4 weeks now with cherry's a week before that. The only one not doing so well is Berkley Tie Dye, there is only a few fruit, maybe one on it. It didn't do squat last year either. I will not be bringing it back. Other than Black cherry i would say Black From Tula is in the lead as far as plant and fruit production. But everything else (except for the BTDye is loaded as well.

I have Black From Tula, Black Cherry, Brandywine Sudduth, Arkansas Traveler, Kelloggs Breakfast, Giant Syrian, 1884 Purple, Spudakee, Couer de Bouef, OSU Blue, Paul Robenson
