a (not quite but very close to) ripe GOC.
Ok, so I wasn't sure if I should start a new thread, but I know some of you are into specific varieties. I came home from almost two weeks of vacation and was pleasantly surprised. My house sitter was prepared to water as needed, but that was about the end of his responsibility. Everything survived just fine!
And, I've been getting tomatoes! One or two a day at this point, plus a good handful of cherry maters as well. I'm fast approaching the basketfull a day stage, and I'm SOOOOO excited. Very little disease (one plant only, really) and insect problems to date. So far, I've eaten a Lehrer Tomate, a GOC, and one of my mystery potato leafs. All plenty tasty. I have to say, I was surprised by the Grandma Oliver's. For some reason, I was expecting a smallish fruit, but these are all good sized 'maters.
The Lehrer's are another story all together, I have several green fruit well larger than a large softball. I *think* I may have a few contenders for the largest fruit contest forming, but we'll see. Anyway, I'll update my other thread with pictures of the plants when I get a chance.
It's good to be home....
