Tomatoes

We planted four different tomato plants this spring.  Bloody Butcher which produced quite well until the storms, Sweet n Neat Red which was good, Black cherry which is still going strong and the ever popular Russian Red.

Way back in 2013 I purchased a Yates Seeds 130 year Commerative Tin containing 10 packets of Seeds,  Most were still unopened so this year after planting the other tomatoes we sowed a few seeds of a Tomato called on the packet "Large Red".  These have been growing well and outgrew their posts while we were busy on other projects so that after one storm Doug spent a morning putting in new stakes and chopping the tomatoes back and retying them.



They are just starting  to ripen. .Tonight I picked the first, by no way the largest.  Here it is pictured next to a Black Cherry Tomato.

  1. we have red cherry ones, and I think the large might be Beefsteak or Russian Red. They are fruiting so well. I found the ruffled red poppy seeds!!!

    1. Large red was the name on the Yates packet. Looks like a beefsteak type. The poppies only if you can spare some.

  2. They look so good. Except for fighting the dreaded black spot disease, growing tomatoes is so satisfying.

    1. Yes, if these survive the distance we will have a good crop.

  3. Catching up with my blog reading. Sue, your tomatoes look fantastic. The weather's been really cold and windy here so I haven't ventured out and bought any seeds yet.
