Here's a picture of the second generation of the Ambrosia Red offtype I have. The first generation came from Gardenboy (of Tomatoville's) seed offer. The first generation was golfball-sized and yellow. After the first few fruits, it tasted great, and was extremely prolific and vigorous. It was p...read more

Here's a picture of the Amana Orange tomato that I'm growing this year, from Marsha's seed offer at TomatoJunction, this year. I've grown it from another source before, and liked it (however, it may have been crossed with a pink tomato then, and I thought I ran out of seeds). heirloom_tomato

And I'm growing it. Here's a picture of the F3 plant. I just thinned it to one plant, today. It has shown excellent greenhouse cold-tolerance and vigor, and great vigor post-transplant.

Sunroots in tomato soups/sauces!

in Sunroot
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I've found that blending up sunroots with tomato sauces and/or soups makes them pretty tasty! Additionally, it helps to thicken them and add nutrients. You can make an excellent ketchup and cocktail sauce substitute by doing this: • Blend up a jar of home-canned stewed tomatoes (skins, see...read more

This thread on Gardenweb began the discussion, 'What are you favorite black tomatoes?' https://www.houzz.com/discussions/2192757/what-are-your-favorite-black-tomatoes Rather than resurrect the thread there, I figured I'd start a new one, and I might as well do it here, instead.

So, we have a lot of canned tomatoes. I've been stewing over what to do with canned tomatoes for a long time, now. I mean, if some emergency* happened and we had to use them without having access to things like meat, cheese and broth, we would probably need to know more to do with them than maki...read more

Do you have to refrigerate peppers?

by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
Question: Do you have to refrigerate peppers? Answer: Nope. You sure don't. I don't know why they refrigerate them in stores, unless it's to keep the green ones from turning red or something. In my opinion, you're better off keeping them unrefrigerated, even if you bought them from the ...read more
