None of my plants got very big this year but the flavors have been outstanding.
I have 4 Better Boy plants that have been putting out a pretty steady stream of fruit. Nice thin skins and sweet meat.
My sweet red bell pepper plants have done very little, but the flavor is spot on. I won't be filling the freezer this year for sure.
As stated above, the cherry plants did virtually nothing so I've been hitting the farmers market to fill the bowl on the counter Iike to nibble out of.
I'll have to come reference your varieties next spring Dale. You have some nice looking 'maters there. (Yes, I'm flirting)

OMG!!! I look just like Jay Sherman.

I planted A cherry tomato in front of the shop and we can't keep up with it. Skins are a little thick but juicy. Every day we pick about twenty or so.

Man, you guys are killing me! Uncle Don brings me two or three a couple times a week, but this is the time of year when I want to be eating them three meals a day.

Have had lots and lots of great tomatoes so far but went through a "bloom drop" for a couple weeks and the new ones are still green. I will have more.

Tater, I highly recommend the "Black Prince" not very big but excellent flavor.


Excellent Bad Example
