Project Tomato - It's Yummy
Yesterday harvested a couple of the tomatoes for salad and it was sweet and yummy.

These fruits are from the heirloom plant no.2, they are larger then I expected about the size of the regular tomato that I planted last. The shape is a bit odd, looks like ... I don't know...

The heirloom plant no.2 is stunted maybe because of the heat but the hybrid plant no.3 is skinny and tall. No.2 have many fruits but no.3 have many flowers and only 2 fruits.

Fruits from the hybrid looks much more like cherry tomatoes but there is only two fruits even though there are lots of flowers.
How about plant no.1? OK, ok guilty as charged, digging it out to inspect for beetle grub is a VERY bad idea ... I'll kick myself in the butt. OUCH!!!

Well, I think that congratulations are in order here. You must be pretty pleased with those first salad toms.
Congratulations. You should be very proud.
Sorry to hear about plant no.1 KK. Interesting to see the differences between plant 2 and 3. I love following this!
Thank you Sjoerd, yes I am very pleased that once again I can get to enjoy tomatoes again.
Do you intensively cultivate and shape the plants? Have you tried a control group study of plants allowed to grow as vines? I aim toward smaller varieties, as they mature more quickly than the average beastie is able to kill them. This year's larger varieties have forced much more policing on my part. I love the Juliets, as they ripen quickly and outsmart many pests. Just curious. From central Texas, amateur gardener. ~Robin
