But that's not the only interesting tomato-related news in the driveway. The 5 gallon grow bag indeterminate varieties are really thriving - in fact, I am urging myself to top some this week, as fruit set has been quite good. Small (even medium) tomatoes are now hanging on vines of the following: Cherokee Green, Little Lucky, Chocky F1 (one of my indeterminate X Dwarf crosses), Red variant of Yellow Brandywine (a mystery variety), Morty F1 (another indeterminate X Dwarf cross of mine), Burgundy Traveler purple (a nice surprise from a customer last year), Ruggy F1 (we hope - a friend hoped he succeeded in his first indeterminate X Dwarf cross), Jaune Flamme, Arkansas Traveler, Magnus, Rosso Sicilian (seed given to me by a neighbor), an Italian tomato given to me as a seedling by a customer, red variant of Burgundy Traveler (another mystery), Berkeley Tie Dye, Yellow White, Yellow Brandywine, Indian Stripe, Green Giant, KBX, JD Special C Tex, Dester, Cherokee Chocolate, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, and Speckled Roman - not to mention the deck cherry tomatoes (3 Sun Gold, Tiger Tom, Egg Yolk, Mexico Midget and my friend Bob's mystery cherry). That makes around 60 of my plants with fruit set, which is a relief as we are facing some nasty, non-good-fruit set weather.
I didn't get pics of everything (my battery ran out, and it was getting too warm this morning), but here are some pics of a few indeterminate varieties.
