The Germans called Dutch green-house tomatoes "waterbombs", because what they lacked i taste, they were full in water.

Found some piece of pork prepared for the grill in my fridge and added tomatoes, peperoni, mushrooms and halloumi. Joined by a glass of Emmaboda Pale Ale (EPA) and a hop vodka.

3 or 4 tomato plants is all i do., mostly small this year. A cold June turned to a nice july and everything is dooing well.
We cropped off some basil to go in 4lb of butter some garlic and such. Nice over a good steak or what ever else my hun creates. We usually make a trip to the valley late sept for tomatoes for a batch of bottled salsa.....tom sause etc. The crop of peppers are coming along well........ 4 or 4 varities.

Nothing like home grown tomatoes,
but store bought have improved alot
in the last few years. The 'on the vine'
are not bad. Breeding? GMO? Faster
'field to fork'?

I have 15 plants (Better Boy variety) plus another ten volunteers that produce cherry tomatoes.

I hope to can at least two dozen pints this year, but it does not look good.

We only have 4 tomato plants this year, all "heirloom" varieties but don't ask me what they are, SWMBO bought the seedlings. One is small and bushy and covered in blossoms right now, she says it is a cherry-type plant. The other 3 are huge and very rbst, if we had dreamed they would get this big we would have planted them further apart. They are also starting to flower.

My New Mexico chilis are growing and starting to flower, all grown from seeds from the ones I grew last year. I also have one poblano plant which was the only seed that germinated and took forever to get started. I don't know whether it will bear fruit this summer, but I am going to keep it in a smallish pot so I can bring it indoors in the fall.
