Brandywine looking good...

Post  s1rGr1nG0 on 6/10/2014, 1:41 pm

I've been pulling some tomatoes off the vine the last few days and they are delicious. This guy keeps getting bigger and bigger and still not ready to turn. I'm excited to see how big he will get!  Smile

Very Nice, that is so encouraging to see!!

I tried waiting for my weather to straighten out and sustained windy conditions to calm down and finally couldn't wait anymore.  With multiple stem supports and overhead protection my 12 toms have only been in the ground a couple weeks. No prior hardening off at all because of poor conditions.  They all made it so far and finally showing some flower buds here and there.  Interesting how different one year can be from one year to the next.  The learning curve never ends.

Wow, what a beauty! That is a healthy looking tomato. Now that you've shown us how it's doing now, we want to see how it looks when it's ripe.

I definitely will guys! This is the biggest tomato we have so far. I did pull a Cherokee purple the other day but it's split. Kinda looks like 2 tomatoes merged or something. It's ugly but it's big too.
This Brandywine is being pampered and I watch it like a hawk!

When I finally harvest it I will post pics again to let you guys see. Thanks for the encouraging words.
