August 31st Tomato Update...

The Black Brandywines in an Earthbox
laden with green fruit.
These have a fabulous flavor in a classic heirloom fruit.
Will grow these again and again.

The Bloesser pink on the right
and the Bloesser Yellow (that yellow is accidental) on the left
in an Earthbox, also laden with green fruit.
Love, love the flavor of these.
Excellent Slicing tomato.
Will always grow these.

Aunt Ruby's german cherry
lots of fruit finally ripening.
This is not really a cherry, more plum sized with round fruit.
They taste like cherry tomatoes.
A lot of the fruit on these split, often.
Grown in an earthbox, not impressed with the plant itself.

Here is a closer shot of two Bloesser Pinks ripening.

The plant on the left is the banana peppers,
a lovely crop, this is the second load like that.
I will can them this week. mmm.
They grow well in the homemade self watering container.

The plant on the right is the only
Bi-Color cherry I got.
remember the mess when medium knocked over the seedling tray?
This cherry tomato is FABULOUS.
Great Flavor, fun colors for the kids.
Definately will grow again,
Next year in an Earthbox!

Listada de Gandia in front
Growing and producing well in Earthbox,
though I have another in a homemade self watering container with
the same results.
I will grow them next year in the homemade self watering.
Very nice fruit, good grilled and in eggplant parmesan!

In the Middle of same earthbox,
two purple beauty peppers.
Not Impressed. Not sweet enough for me or hubby.
Okay flavor, just like a bell pepper.
Once we got it germinated, it grew okay in the earthbox, but did not do well in the raised bed.

In the back, against the rail, of same earthbox

These have tasted fabulous green. I cannot wait to eat them red, I hope it sweetens them a bit.
I was hoping to have red peppers all summer, but it just has not gotten hot enough.
I will totally grow these again.
Next year they get their own earthbox and a support trellis system.

Aren't they gorgeous!

and just because I can...

small was so busy cruising around in his jammies,
he hardly noticed his drawers were droopy.
