I am about to commit a bold-faced rip off Hanna’s tomato tasting (Of This Garden Is Illegal fame) I have been following her tomato postings for a couple of years now. With that confession aside, here is an overview of the tomatoes I have grown in Everett, Washington during a year that was beyond bad for tomatoes. Hanna’s first tomato in Ohio was ready in early July. despite having started mine in January, the chilly Northwest did not give me a red tomato until mid August. All of mine are grown in mel’s mix (Square Foot Gardening). Some are grown in my Square foot gardens, some in large black plastic tubs.
The following are the tomatoes I am growing this year. Links will be added as they ripen (or if they fail to ripen) this season.
- Black Plum Paste
- Siletz (August 18, 2010)
- Cherokee Purple
- Oregon Spring (August 19)
- Black Prince
