Indeterminate tomatoes either in the garden (front row cherries) or large pots:
37 varieties total - fruit set on 30 varieties, open flowers on 6, the other with buds (the late transplanted replacement for Striped Sweetheart - first one was a thread leaf mutation).
Disease issues - only one; a Sungold (imagine - a hybrid with a disease issue) in the garden front row has Fusarium and will soon be replaced.
Only ones yet to set fruit - Cherokee Purple (weird, this - see the next paragraph), Anna Russian (went in as a tiny seedling, very old seed), Big Sandy (in one of the most shaded areas of the driveway - first cluster dropped), Lillian's Yellow (typically late, should set fruit any day), Large Lucky Red (should set soon), and Bridge Mike's (first cluster dropped, loaded with blossoms).
Apparent crosses: Cherokee Chocolate from 1998 is setting clusters of what will end up being large cherry sized tomatoes. Cherokee Purple from 1999 hasn't set the huge central clusters, and just doesn't look typical - we shall see.
Small pot indeterminates:
69 varieties total. Fruit set on 38, open flowers on the rest.
Disease issues: Yellow Ponderosa (TSW, was pulled and replaced), Lucky Cross RL (Fusarium, still living has fruit, moved), Large Lucky Red RL (Severe Fusarium moved, probably will not fruit)
Apparent crosses: none at this point.
106 plants total, fruit set on 56, open flowers on most of the rest
Disease issues: Sweet Adelaide (Fusarium, replaced), Dwarf Rosella Giant (Fusarium), Rosella Crimson (possible Fusarium, replacement planted), Dwarf Blazing Giant (onset of Fusarium perhaps, new one planted), Sleeping Lady (possible TSW, moved), Lucky Swirl PL (possible onset of F, watching), Bendigo Rose (possible onset of F, watching)
Apparent crosses - not really applicable - many of these are early generation/still slightly to very unstable, so it is like a box of chocolates - who knows what I will get).
So - overall, 212 plants, fruit set on 124.
Diseases on 11 so far, with some of those still hanging in and only a few critical.
Apparent crosses - only 2 showing so far.
Not a bad start - and I was just thinking.....if I get just 10 lbs per plant on average - 2120 pounds (a ton!). and it only gets better from there....
