Tomatoes for the cold coast
Last summer, I don't think we got above the 70s at all. I grew my usual Early Girl-type tomatoes, which these days are New Girl from Johnny's Seeds. They turned out OK, though not as sweet as usual. What are the other coastal gardeners growing this year? I'm wondering about Stupice and Cherokee Purple.
Also, our peppers, both the sweet Italian type and the chile peppers, had a most peculiar year. They all set a crop of peppers about 1" long. The varieties should have been 4" to 7". I stripped that crop off, and most of the plants set a second crop of normal-sized peppers very late in the season, though by that time the yield was way down and the flavor was inferior to most years.
Did any others have a bad summer last year?
