Black Krim, picked today, but not eaten yet, so I can't comment on the flavor. But so pretty, right?

Enjoy your eclipse party Scorpio!

Posted this in the corn 2017 thread but thought it was relevant here also. Picked the last of my corn. Very pleased with the results! Sad it is all done but looking forward to pulling up the stalks and making room for fall planting! Here's one of the ears:

Beautiful, Hammock Gal! I hope my Krims ripen someday...

Tonight I had succotash and used my Burmese okra, my Tam Jalapeños, and my "42 Days" tomatoes (yep, that's what the variety is called.)

It's supposed to be 42 days from transplanting out until the first ripe tomatoes. I had a hard time germinating this one - I'm not sure it's the variety, the source, or 'luck', but I didn't get the plant started until late April. My computer crashed and I lost a week of journaling, so I don't have the exact date I transplanted out, it was mid to mid-late June -- so it was either exactly 42 days until I picked the first pair of tomatoes, or three to four days later! Generally speaking, the tomatoes are being quite slow to ripen locally this year. I'm glad I planted an early sort so that I have some. I'm really impressed with the flavor and the yield. It's not the best tomato I've ever tasted, not especially complex or rich, but it's got a nice balance of sweet and acid -- not sugary, not mouth-puckering, and not styrofoam! Also, the adjacent tomato got BER, but this one didn't. I'm definitely growing this one again!

I managed to pick some things from the SFG for a lunch salad just before the sky opened up with buckets of rain and now a tornado watch in effect.

The salad consists of the nasturtium leaves/flower, everbearing strawberries, onion, butter king lettuce, beet leaf, swiss chard, kale, mizuna (mustard) and spicy salad greens. I did not use a salad dressing because I wanted to enjoy all the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) flavors from these delicious crops.

I forgot to bring in tomato ... duh!

NAR56, your peppers make me so jealous! Here is my haul from this morning. I'm finally getting so many tomatoes that even I can't keep up with eating them. I think I'm going to try some roasted tomato sauce.

How many tomato plants do you have?  Do you remember the date that you transplanted them?
Determinate or Indeterminate?  They look great?

Hi Brian, I have 11 tomato plants. They're all indeterminate. We had some late frost warnings this year, and if I remember correctly, I transplanted them around June 1st. So with that late start, even the ones that were supposed to be early, sadly, were not. But they're all catching up now, and I'm enjoying every last one. hungry

Ok.  I have twelve and transplanted late in July .  ( south Mississippi) mine are determinate since I planted so late. (We don't frost until Late November or early December normally ( if that) But if I can use your plants as a gauge I might be overflowing in a month or so . They are beginning to bloom now. Thanks. Very Happy

We continue to enjoy the strawberries from the everbearing strawberry plants in one of our 4x4 SFG beds. Those plants just keep on giving and they really seem to thrive in the Mel's Mix. Yummy!

They really are the bomb. Don't think I'd ever had a cuke directly from the garden before and I was blown over by the difference. So crispy, so sweet! I'm off to check out Sanderson's Munchers for next year. Very Happy
