This might be the first year we don't grow them & I'm going to miss that smell they give off when you just brush by the plant & just eating them off the vine. Sigh. Every year our yields get less and less and the black crud gets them. I need to find a good source for some big juicy ones others grow. Another thing is that they take up alot of room in the garden so we plan on growing more variety of other veggies in their place. If we were growing them we'd have roma and beefsteak.
I love them. I only have the patio, so I will do successive plantings. I just started Early Girl plants and will probably continue with those throughout the season. I really like the Yellow pear tomatoes, but their days to maturity is just too long for the patio.
Next year, I will have a proper garden and have all the maters and other vegatables that I want.
Trying new ones this season mortgage lifter; brandywine; sweet million and will plant roma and grapes. Has anyone tried the different color tomatoes? My ds grew chocolate last year. I don't know about anyone else, but eating a green, purple or brown tomato just doesn't sound appetizing.
Weather is nice today; getting the gardening bug. Can't wait!!!!!!
