    Here is Big Zac. Sweet, meaty and juicy. But do I really want a tomato too big for my grilled cheese sandwich? I will have to look for a smaller one for next year. Hahahaha CAT_1934.jpg

    These are some of the little guys.

    The pink, pearl-shaped ones are Porter. This was my grandmother's tomato and DW's introduction to something other than red and round. The red and round ones here ;) are Sweet Chelsea. Oh yum! Sweet 100 genetics but with some size to them. There are the candy-like and ever-popular Sungolds off to the right. Beside them are the Yellow Jelly Beans.

    A Yellow Jelly Bean plant this evening:

    It receives little attention except to enjoy the snacking! Tomato flavor and a nice, tender skin. O they are good and I am so happy to have found them 3 or 4 years ago. I was suspicious because of bad cracking problems with Yellow Pear and Red Jelly Bean plants are not nearly as healthy and productive. (I grew those for 2 years.) I will probably always want them in a 5 gallon pot at the foot of the back steps.

    Some favorite little guys! You can click for a LARGER picture .. :)

    Those are some beautiful tomatoes! Nobody wants to see mine. I will be lucky if I can one batch of sauce. Worst gardening year, ever! Will have to keep my eyes open for those Jelly Beans, Digits. I loved the yellow pear, but got tired of all the cracking...

    Same here...I'd be ashamed for anyone to see mine. I'll be lucky to have enough to make a single, small batch of soup. Pitiful small tomatoes, few of them. Worst garden year...EVER.

    Embarrassed Tomato Growers unite! ( @lesa & @Beekissed )
    I'm in the same boat of shame. My garden is an embarrassment and I'm a garden class teacher...talk about humiliation! :oops:

    The gophers have invaded, the soil needed amending and somehow I overlooked that elementary gardening principle in spring and the maple tree roots are edging in farther and farther competing with veggies.:barnie

    Thankfully the kids garden is doing a bit better and their potatoes and tomatoes outdid mine. Their kale and lettuce and beans are also producing.

    Next year we'll kick some garden butt! So glad to have that possibility in years like this. :)
