Rain, Rain…..you know the rest.  All this rain has seriously dampened even my motivation to write.  The second wettest June on record.  And it’s not doing the garden any good at this point.  We’re hoping for a better conditions on the 4th.

Some good news, though, we picked our first tomatoes this week.  As usual, they were a couple of Sweet 100’s.  But when I picked ’em I realized I hadn’t even posted this years line-up.  So, here it is:

Sweet 100’s

Chocolate Cherry

Gold Nugget (also a cherry)

Ramapo

Moreton

Costoluto Genovese

Cherokee Purple

Pineapple

Old German

Purple Russian

Brandywine

Old Italtian Plum

Super Marzano

 

For a total 25 plants.  At least initially.  We’ve already lost one of the Sweet 100’s.  It turned yellow from the base up in just over a week.  Weird.

forewarned is forearmed! Get out that fungicide. I know your plants don’t come from big box stores, but this sounds like the H1N1 of the plant world.
