Okay, I am a little surprised there hasn't been a tomato thread started for this year yet, so here we go.
The past couple of seasons have been the worst tomato crops I've ever had, mainly I think because the wintersown tomatoes just sprout too late to get a decent crop before the first frost roll around. So this year, instead of wintersowing them, I am going to start them indoors.
The number of plants the I have space for is a pretty firm 17. Not willing to give up any of the pepper square footage!
Don't have time or $ to place any orders, so trying to work with what I have on hand.
Here is what I have sown so far:
*Aunt Gertie's Gold
*Matt's Wild Cherry
So that leaves 10 more spots to fill. Here are the ones I am trying to decide between:
*Box Car Willie
*Neves Azorean Red
*Amazon Chocolate OR Black Russian OR Black Krim
*Gold Medal OR Mammoth German Gold OR Yellow Brandywine
*Soldacki OR Rainy's Maltese (I've grown them both and liked them equally well)
*Some type of oxheart - I have about a dozen different ones. Need one that is very productive. Not sure which one to pick.
*Gold Currant and/or White Currant - I've read that these can be grown in a hanging basket. Will they really produce that way?
I got some good feedback about some of the varieties on this list from the folks on the tomato forum, but nobody over there seems to care for the currant types. Are they even worth trying? I thought they would be good for snacking and salads.
Okay, so any help narrowing down the OR's would be appreciated.
