Early Treat F1 tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I harvested four ripe fruits of the Early Treat F1 tomato on 20 Aug 2019. They were the first on the plant. They were salad-sized with a normal salad tomato taste (maybe a little sweet). The skins were thick. The plant had eastern shade and a late start. I saved F2 seeds from these fruits. ...read more

Delicious 51 melon

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I grew Delicious 51 from Everwilde Farms . I knew from the picture of it where I bought it that it was probably a cross, but I wanted to try it anyway. It grew a fruit that looked like a Charentais melon (but it tasted very delicious in a way that the Charentais melon I grew this year did not, a...read more

Watermelon Day!

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Today seems to be watermelon day (2019) or the day when we first harvest lots of watermelons at once. I found nineteen ripe ones, the largest of them being a Santo Domingo Dark Green. Most of the winter watermelons and larger watermelons are still ripening. Alas, I don't mean National Waterme...read more

Aunt Gertie's Gold

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
My beloved Aunt Gertie's Gold fruit got blossom end rot. It got it heavily; so, I didn't taste the fruit. However, I was determined not to let it stop me (so, I saved seeds from it, just in case). There are other fruits forming. Hopefully they make it. I often wonder if seeds from BER fruits...read more

Black Vernissage

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here are some Black Vernissage fruits. I saved seeds from them. The plant was stunted until other plants had already been big for a good while. However, it was the first tomato to sprout, I believe. I think a disease stunted it. I zapped the seeds (so, I'm curious to see how they perform next ti...read more

Big Boy F1 tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here are a couple Big Boy F1 tomatoes. I saved F2 seeds from them. The taste wasn't anything out of the norm, but the fruits were shaded by the plant itself and surrounding caged tomato plants. The taste wasn't bad, though. I think it would taste better with more sun. f1_hybrid_tomato ...read more

Noire de Crimée tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I tasted some Noire de Crimée tomatoes with BER, on 3 Aug 2019. They were good, but the taste was a lot milder and more normal than I would have expected from what others say about it and Black Krim. Maybe the shade from the neighboring plants lesseed the flavor. There are ripe ones without B...read more

Black Beauty tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here are some Black Beauty fruits, this year. I'm not sure if this is a cross or not, since it has different growing conditions, this year. The definite cross showed no anthocyanin; so, that has me thinking this might be true-to-type. I grew it in 2017 where it waited until the end of the se...read more

Mustard Bhutlah with anthocyanin

in Chinese Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 4 comments
I'm growing two Mustard Bhutlah plants. One of them has black on its leaves and fruits. It started out having a lot of black, but soon a lot of the black dissipated. The stems and branches are black, except on the lower half of the plant. One of the fruits appears to be all black. I discovered t...read more

Make popcorn with oil and put Tajin seasoning on it. It's awesome. Tajin seasoning is made from salt, cayenne pepper, and limes, I believe. recipe_

Savory baked gourd with tomatoes

in Calabash
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
Ingredients: * 1 long Kikinda Competition Strain edible gourd (at least a couple inches in diameter), sliced * The equivalent of about five medium-sized tomatoes, cut up * Lots of summer savory, both leaves and stalks (if you don't think it's too much, it's probably not enough) * Parsley ...read more

Lacto-fermented chile sauce

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here's a recipe I used, which I liked (it tastes awesome and is great on burritos in place of salsa): ~1 gallon of blended up raw peppers (mostly Jalapenos); I added a little filtered water to help blend them (but you might want to use some of the vinegar below instead) 3 cups of dis...read more

Vegetable omelet recipe

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
My mom makes very frittata-like omelets. We call them omelets, anyhow. I decided to try to make one today, for the first time. I don't know exactly how she does it, but I guessed to fill in the gaps, and I think I'm right, because it turned out well. Yes, I used ingredients my mom wouldn't have,...read more

Torpeda melon with turban

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
The turban melon split open, probably a while ago by the look of it. I started fermenting the seeds and used the rest to enrich soil, since it seemed unsafe to eat. I'm fermenting the seeds since they have a whole lot of gel. Since that trait seems recessive my plant probably isn't a cross (unle...read more

Weeks NC Giant watermelon crosses, 2019

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 5 comments
Here's a picture of our largest watermelon to date, this season (I'm guessing it's 17lbs; there are some potential contenders). It's not huge, but it's large for our garden. It has pink flesh and black seeds. It may, or may not, have a winter watermelon in its ancestry. This was one of the fi...read more

Honeycomb x Torpeda F1

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I grew Honeycomb F1 last year and saved the seeds (at least one of which got cross-pollinated by Torpeda). I grew the cross-pollinated seed this year, and it grew these two fine fruits, which were quite striped earlier in the season. They slipped from the vine when ripe, surprisingly. I don't re...read more

Matina tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I grew Matina in 2016 (from seeds from timeless-tomatoes.com), 2017 (from seeds saved in 2016), and 2019 (from seeds from timeless-tomatoes.com). In 2016, the plant was watered a lot. It was very early and prolific. Many people favored this tomato. It was mildly tangy. The plant was caged. It...read more

Mountain Princess tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I've been growing Mountain Princess every year since 2016 (from seeds freshly saved the previous year each year, except 2016, when I used seeds from timeless-tomatoes.com). Anyway, this year, the fruit is about as large as it was in 2016 (when it was watered heavily, although this year it was...read more

Epazote is awesome!

in Epazote
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, I found some Epazote seeds at tradewindsfruit.com and grew a plant, this year. It took a while to get started, but wow! It really seems to make beans feel nutritious (normally, beans don't make me feel extremely nourished, but I tried some black beans and ham with epazote and Mexican sour cr...read more

Those who grow wonderberries might appreciate this (religious) video, entitled Flecks of Gold, at harvest time: https://youtu.be/fEfg-Z-TOc8 "The patient accumulation of these little flecks has brought me great wealth." I spent about an hour or so harvesting all our ripe wonderb...read more

Charley's Pride melon

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I'm growing seeds that I was told were Charley's Pride. However the fruits didn't match the description—but I think that may just be because the plants are struggling with the growing conditions. The fruits are undersized, and not all of them are striped. They should be quite large and striped. ...read more
