Jealous!! Esp about the taters! I was curious last week as to how mine were doing so I started digging in my 20 gallon tubs to see how/what was going on in there. I didn't find much of anything. I was concerned a while back that they didn't look so good. And I was right; nothing was happening in there. UGH. Not sure what went wrong but I have a few ideas of what I'll do different.

Congrats on all your goodies! Enjoy them! You deserve it after all your hard work!

Good food

Post  ander217 on 7/23/2010, 10:48 am

Yummy-looking food.

How's the taste of that truffle tomato?

I know what you mean about the nutmeg. My two grandmothers each made beautiful apple pies, but one used nutmeg and the other used cinnamon. I always liked the cinnamon flavor better and that's all I put in my apple pies. I'm just not a nutmeg kind of girl.

It was "eh" but i find that most fruit are. I think once the plant (and weather) settles it will be delish. It was meatier than I thought it would be, and the flavor was, i am horrible at describing, but deeper? not light like a "normal" tomato.

Green Grape tomato flavor

Post  ander217 on 7/23/2010, 2:17 pm

My mom only grew one tomato - Rutgers - and growing up I never realized there were so many different kinds. Nowadays it seems we almost need phrases such as the wine experts use to distinguish among all the different tomatoes - this one is smoky, that one has undercurrent flavors of currants or cassis, etc.

We picked our first Green Grape tomato yesterday and halved it. It was very good, and the flavor was just as the seed catalog described it - tart, lively, and very intense flavor. It wasn't as sweet as most grape tomatoes, but its intense flavor made up for the lack of sweetness. I'll definitely grow them again. I think they would really add to a lettuce salad.
