    Looking good. It's been so dry, I have to remember to water mine daily.

    Is that a pistol grip I see on the lower left?

    If you have soil-borne diseases, be sure to check resistances before ordering heirloom seed (or even F1's!). I want to report that the Brandywine, Belize Pink Heart, and Black Krim purchased from Baker Creek are not resistant to V. wilt or F. wilt. Learned the hard way this season.

    Here's a good site. They don't list Baker Creek but they do list individual varieties and resistances.

    We have more tomatoes coming in than we can handle. A full basket came in today from the garden (basket holds at least 25 pounds of them). We have about 15 different varieties and most are putting out a bounty. Still waiting on the Japanese Black Truffel and Indigo Rose tomatoes to produce. We have also taken in a lot of lima beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, raspberries, blueberries, Onions, chives, etc. We are still waiting on several things to come with a ton of melons probably ready by the end of the week. All told we are growing about 15-16 different fruits and veggies with some crops having several varities. All of this is being done organically on 1/4th of an acre.

    designed to make of their victory,
    there would have been no surrender at
    Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me.
    Had I foreseen these results of subjugation,
    I would have preferred to die at Appomattox
    with my brave men, my sword in my right hand." - Robert E. Lee to Governor Fletcher S. Stockdale (D-Texas), 1870

    Guess so, thought there was only a handful. Im not a big tomato guy unless it is on something (don't like to eat them whole) but some of these look and sound really good.

    You betcha. Ruger Blackhawk. The tomato plants are about 5 feet tall. I use cages made of concrete reinforcing wire. The base of the plants are mulched with bedding straw from the barn. Insect pests are controlled with a pyrethrin spray and BT dust. Each plant gets five gallons of water every 3-4 days. Can't buy a drop of rains this year, it seems.

    This year.

    Cherokee Purples. <Sandich>
    German Johnson. <Sandich>
    Marions. <Salads>
    Better Boys. <Canning>
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.
