Default Tomatoes

Who will be growing some this season? How many and what kind(s)?

I'll be planting 10-12 Better Boys around the middle of April.

I'm not growing them but I volunteer to eat all the excess tomatoes everyone grows. You wouldn't want them to go bad, right?

I LOVE AMAZING SUMMER TOMATOES. Very excited that tomato season is around the corner. OK, maybe across the street, down a few blocks and THEN around the corner.

But it's comin'.

I'm hoping to grow 3-4 plants this year. Max LOVES picking grape tomatoes off the plant during the summer. We're moving on the 7th into a house with a big back yard and i plan to have a little section for gardening. I want some fat tomato plant and a few munchie sized tomatoes. Maybe a roma plant too.

I was originally going to do the yellow cherry variety but saw these purple/black ones and had to have them.Let us know how yours come out and what plant it is. If I do well this year I will do a few varieties next year I love cherry/grape tomatoes. I am most interested in all the heirloom varieties of veg. I also want to do blueberries and strawberries but I have my plate full for this season I think. Going to attempt to save seed to,and if the gardening goes well learn to can eventually.I think these are great skills to have and nearly lost to my generation and younger.

" Who will be growing some this season? How many and what kind(s)? "

This is what I have growing as far as tomatoes this year:

- 4 Patio
- 2 Husky Cherry Red
- 2 Chocolate Cherry
- 1 Cherokee Purple
- 1 Yellow Pear
- 1 Lemon Boy
- 1 German Heirloom
- 1 some random red hybrid, can't remember which variety.
- 1 "bonus" plant from last season's fallen fruit, no clue what kind.

So far, so good... Since I live in such a hot and humid climate, the best chance at getting a good number of tomatoes means planting early. I try and get my tomato transplants all planted in the first half of March. Other than that, I've got different kinds of eggplants and peppers, some blueberries, dwarf citrus trees, a few kinds of cucumbers, a pot of chard, some lettuce, a couple kinds of green beans, lots of herbs, carrots, beets, and will be trying some odd little heirloom melons that make very small fruit.

I plan to have about 8 or 10 plants, maybe a dozen. I look for a solid, easy to scald, peel and can species. The Celebrity usually works well for me. There are a few others that are really tasty, but are harder to handle. They were well for making juice, because you just wash, cut up, and cook before putting through a ricer for nice, thick juice. MMMM.

I gave up on my attempts at vegetable gardening several yeas ago, between very limited space, slugs/squirrels/racoons raiding what we grew, and that when we did get anything, the farmer's market a few minutes walk away would have the same thing at ridiculously low prices.

BUT, I pretty much rely on my Mom, the dedicated gardener, starting more tomato plants than she ends up having room for, and I have one large ceramic planter waiting for its annual crop of two cherry tomato plants (usually one round and red, one yellow and bottle shaped). No idea what the breeds are...in particular the yellow bottle shaped ones have been raised from saved seeds since my grandmother got some a few decades back, and they've probably hybridized with other tomatoes around them since then.
