Tomato Report

I don’t have so many tomatoes that I want to cry, but I’m getting there.

Remember, that was the goal.

The German Lunchbox are small. They’re like Roma shaped cherry tomatoes that are a pinkish color. The Roma are also small. I think I was over-watering because I’ve backed off and they are going gangbusters.

The Early Girl are also on the small side, but perfectly round and pretty.

The one that I grew from a seed and then knocked all the leaves off when I planted is producing big giant tomatoes. I like that one. There’s a gigantic one out there now. I’m going to pick it tomorrow.

I’ve been eating about a half pound a day but I need to make something with them. Probably soup because that transforms a huge amount of tomatoes into a few ziplock bags of soup I can have in the winter.

This is a typical haul. I picked the green one by accident. I try to pick every other day.

The cucumbers are making big leafy vines but producing zippo. The pumpkin patch is sadder than sad. The beets have been doing great. I yanked one of the sunflowers because it was getting in my way and turns out the birds and squirrels missed it because it is loaded with seeds so I brought it into the shop. I need to figure out the best way to de-seed it.

Maybe ehow has a completely worthless article I can consult.

    Awesome! What a cornucopia! We used to grow lots of tomatoes until darling wife found out they give her headaches (allergy, we think).
