Things are finally coming to fruition in the garden and I'm loving it. My tomatoes are delicious, and they are much bigger than last years. It must be that calcium boost that I've been giving them. I've learned by lesson with the pickling cukes. I must check the vines daily to avoid another mutiny. The Roma vines are loaded. I'll be making sauce as soon as I can harvest enough for a few batches. In the mean time, I see a batch of salsa in my future.
I don't know what's up with the cucumber up front. They've grown all shapes, sizes and colors this year. This is a slicer, so I'll be using it in a salad this week-end.
My beefsteaks are monsters! I've been enjoying them on BLTs, but the Paul Robeson is the bomb! They will be on my all-time favorite list for sure and will have a place in the garden every year. The tomato on the right up front, is a Hillbilly, which started in my native West Virginia. Haven't tasted it yet, so I'll keep you posted on what I think about them. Still waiting for my pink Brandywines to ripen and the Better Boy. Until than, I'll continue to enjoy the Paul Robeson and Beefsteaks. Yum, Yum!
I'm off to make a batch of dill pickles. Stay tuned for that post!
