I live in Meadows of Dan which is in S/W Virginia, on the Blue Ridge. The elevation is 3000' and temps are about 10 degrees below those who live "under the mountain" or at the base, in Stuart which is 1345'.
Even though I am near the top of the Blue Ridge, my garden soil is a very rich alluvial because of the small year round stream on the property. There have been frosts in early May.
I want to plant as many tomato and sweet peppers as possible and would like recommendations for varieties. The soil is a very rich mix of fine gravel and organic and never needs watering as the water table is 18" below.
Previous plantings of roma and Better Boy tomatoes and sweet bell peppers have been very successful.
