Now on to Tomatoes- It was a rough year last year but Praise God I am feeling so much better, I have a little help lined up and am stepping out in faith to say these are the plans for this season.
For Plants we will be offering;
Mortgage Lifter- Pink Beefsteak lower acid but great flavor and good story behind the name.
Caspian Pink- The Caspian Pink beat Brandywine varieties in three straight taste tests.
Black from Tula- Another "Black" Russian dependable and delicious but lower acid content.
Green Zebra- Astounding almost citrusy flavor. Beautiful fruit that stays green but has yellow stripes. Yum
Amana Oange- Big Low Acid orange tomato- Named for the Amana Colonies by which it was developed.
Black Plum - The name says it all-great for drying
Black Krim- New this year -Wow I like these Russian tomatoes
Purple Carbon-Standard here for 6 years. No cat facing. Russian variety
Golden Jubilee- Golden beefsteak lower acid w/good flavor
MoonGlow- Orange salad size around 4oz good for container
|Cour di Bue|
Cour di Bue - Italian Oxheart
Rutgers-Determinant, Good yields- Old fashioned, red favorite for canning.
Tigerella- 2 inch, very round fruit-good disease resistance
Cherokee Chocolate- wasn't planning on these but free seed came w/order. Supposed to be an improved version of Cherokee.
Hybrids- These are full flavor NON GMO hybrids. I have grown these for 25 years. You won't be disappointed.
Early Girl- Salad size, indeterminant non stop red producers
Pink Girl- Large Pink beefsteak type lower acid but awesome flavors
Lemon Boy - Lemon yellow- not golden with an zesty citrus flavor.
Bush Early Girl- Same great flavor but suitable for containers
Now these tomatoes are what will be grown for only for produce sales at the market. Along with everything else already mentioned of course.
Left to right -We grew these last year and so pleased, they all made the cut again this year.
SunGold- Sweetest Cherry Tomato on market
Indigo Rose- Full of antioxidants
Chocolate Cherry&Black Cherry-Rich flavors Both Heirlooms
Principe Borghese-like a little baby Roma- great for drying-Heirloom
Riesenstraube-Another Cherry Heirloom, Red. New this Season
Violet Jasper- We had a few of these last year but not enough to sell. We're trying again this year
Azoychka Russian- 6- 8 oz yellow Russian- Got these in late last year but what we did get had succulent flavor. Similar in looks to The Pork Chop tomato but with green shoulders.
Okay, I think that's all but probably I forgot 1 or 2. Remember all our tomatoes are grown in organic potting mix. Sunflower Savannah is Certified Naturally Grown which means no pesticides, herbicides and sustainably managed. What we take out, we put back.
Tune in next time for lambing updates- some of the girls are due in a couple of weeks.
Don't forget St.Johns!
God's blessings on you and yours
