We go the lazy route. I have a few pots with Beefsteak tomatoes and a few cherry. We love tomatoes and only eat them when they are in season. NJ produces a great tomato.
So true, we go to Jersey in late August and get bushels of Roma tomatoes and bring them home and process them into a puree that we make sauce with throughout the year. It is a full family all day event.
I couldn't grow enough to satisfy this need, so we get the great Jersey tomato.
Ruff, your method sounds great, good luck with the crop.
They'll be good to go !! I didnt take pictures today and I was right next to them . I had to put my ac units in ... during a thunder storm .. lol . Theyre looking real good . I can tell the roots have taken off by the way the plant stalks have thickened and the height of the plants growth . All but one has taken real well . Dont know whats up with the Early Girl plant ... it looked wilted and sad , we'll she how she does in the next couple days . I really want that one to grow because , I've never grown it before , and mostly because if its early .. I'm in the mood for some tomatoes early
I di want to find a Mortgage Lifter plant ... those are bad ass eating and I've had the best luck with them . I just havent seen them around this year
The Mortgage Lifter .. a real tomato , imo
The Early Girl ... real , but with a big seed cavity area and I'm hoping not too acidic ... maybe not my thing so much , but if early ... I dig it
For me , the Mortgage Lifter is
Make a tomato sandwich with them and you'll go out of your freakin mind
