Accidental tomato crosses with stripes

Apparently, my Amana Orange and Chris Ukrainian tomatoes are striped! That may explain why the Chris Ukrainian tomato had a different growth rate than the ones I gave away. Amana Orange could be crossed with any of the following striped tomatoes that I grew in 2016: Girl Girl's Weird Thing, more

Of all my new tomatoes, this year (2019), I'm most impressed with Marion, currently. It had good, clean germination, and a high germination rate. The plant has good vigor. It set fruit early, and the fruits are a good size. The first fruit ripened by 25 July 2019 (it's been a slow-ripening year; more

So, I decided to harvest a full-grown horseradish leaf with chlorosis, today, and eat it. This is the first horseradish leaf of my my plants that I've eaten. The soil had loads of wood ash in it (so it probably needed more nitrogen and less calcium or something). The plant is getting green now, more

We got a Green Globe artichoke plant from Walmart in the spring, and transplanted it in an area with black plastic and western shade. Here's a picture of it on 22 July 2019. Yesterday, it had a lot more artichoke heads showing. Yes, there are watermelons next to it, and I don't regret the more

Here are pictures of my Galapagos Island tomato, this year, taken yesterday. They were sweeter than previous years. They didn't taste like last year's cross; I think they might not be a cross, this time, after all. This might not be 100% S. cheesmaniae, but it's unique from other tomatoes I've more

I saved wonderberry seeds, yesterday. I put a handful of berries in the blender, added water, and blended on the lowest setting. The water turned very purple! I don't think that happened last year. Anyway, after that, I removed the fluids (and added more to clear it, and removed them again, more

Porter tomato (pink plum-shaped fruit)

by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
I got some Porter seeds from AlittleSalt of Tomatoville once upon a time. I grew a plant from them in 2016, without black plastic or mulch, in the ground. It got a lot of overhead watering from an oscillating sprinkler. The fruits were very pink, and kind of shiny. They got anthracnose more

So, I was in the front yard on Saturday, and I saw this for the first time! It's a volunteer Red-seeded Citron watermelon. The seed it grew from was from a plant that I grew in 2015. The fruits kept better than most winter squash. It volunteered last year, too, but this year's plant is more

Our watermelons are doing really nicely, this year, so far. They're setting lots of fruit, and some of it might get large.
