little tomatoes

helenh(z6 SW MO)August 9, 2012

I have plenty of big tomatoes for me, but I give them away and all I have is little ones. I have twenty or thirty little ones for every big one. I planted several kinds of big tomatoes but the only ones I'm getting are Mule Team and Cherokee Purple and another medium one that might be Break o Day but the label is under a jungle. The Pale Perfect Purple medium sized tomatoes produced very well but they are done. There was a mislabeled tomato a yellow large cherry or a little bigger that I didn't think tasted that great but it is loaded and keeps putting on new tomatoes non stop. Siberian an early tomato is also still going like mad. It has been a struggle keeping cucumbers. I don't make pickles. All I want is a cucumber once in a while in a salad or sliced with onions. I have squash bugs that I battle. If I spray, I pick off all cucumbers and wait for new ones to form that haven't been sprayed. I don't have anything else in the garden but I do have a supply of candy onions in the basement. My friend says they are like eating an apple not like store onions so thanks Glenda (I think) for tip on that variety.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I never planted onions this year and I wish I had. The only nice onions I ever raised were the Candy and the Super Star. Candy keeps better. Enjoy them!
