Second batch of tomatoes picked yesterday some preserves as well.
The Opalka tomato was impressive! It’s a good canner!

Beautiful pics!!!! Love the jars, jealous!

In CT, I have battled heat, humidity, drought and I'm on a well, disease. I have egads of squash, peppers, best year for garlic but sadly, my tomatoes have suffered like no year since I started garden over 12 years ago. This is my first year with no crop, not even cherries, they started out well, got hit with a heat wave early on during their first real bloom period and never quite got over it. I typically can loads of tomatoes, marina, and salsa and I can't even get a single nights snack out of my current crop. Disappointed, but I guess they can't all be good years.

Enjoy your harvesting and eat a few for me!

I pray everyone has a good year. My pumpkins and squash did not do well this year. My garlic failed to grow I planted 50 cloves and only 6 survived I believe I put the wrong fertilizer in the ground when I planted them. 4-24-24. I won’t do that this November. Next are my eggplants and beets. So far so good.

That's a real shame about the garlic...I think I pretty much take everything for granted now, that it will grow well if timed correctly.


Have you done garlic a while or was it the first time?

It was my second year the first harvest was fantastic. I believe I did the wrong thing with the fertilizer. My neighbour will give me more for this fall. He has always been generous. Good neighbours and friends always the best for sharing.

I was wondering, some of the tomatoes I have harvested this year do not look, taste, or seem like what I have labeled to come from said
plant.?? Since I do not bag my blossoms and plant my own harvested seeds from the previous year, is this what happens: unintended crosses??

Hello Tryno-12

It is not too late to put netting around your Plants to keep them from crossing. Just Look around for some old netting fabric and just use clothespins to keep the netting down.

It’s sometimes happens that you get some other types of tomatoes. I have three plants that are not what they a supposed to be. I’m still happy its a tomato!!!
