...I know some of you are just getting your harvests in, but join in and let us know as your August harvests start rolling in. ...
My tomato patches are started to get pretty ragged already. I think part of it is result of starting the seeds way early -- mid to late February, plus we had really favorsble weather once the late spring warmed up, so that many varieties matured quickly despite being planted later than usual and in more overgrown stressed state.
My determinates are done or mostly done, and my main season indeterminates have mostly passed their peak, so I'm ready to start thinking about this season's performances and which of these would be returning.
Right off the bat, I know I want the following for their productivity and flavor:
- Kamatis Tagalog
- Snow White
- Casey's Pure Yellow
- Orange Banana
- Jaune FlammeÃ©
- Not Earl's Green Cherry (but this may be an accidental cross and not be the same in the next generation)
These are going to get a serious consideration because of flavor, but they were either not as productive or later maturing
- Pineapple Pig
- Stump of the World
- Cherokee Green
- (Grandma Viney's Yellow and Pink)
I know there are others -- I just can't decide where ro position them. I'll have to come back later and add to the list.
