Marion tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
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;...read more

Flavor and texture of horseradish greens in summer

in Horseradish
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
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, ...read 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 decisi...read more

Galapagos Island (S. cheesmaniae; very early; yellow; cherry)

in Solanum cheesmaniae
by Radishrain • | | 3 comments
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 g...read more

Wonderberry color

in Wonderberry

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,...read more

Porter tomato (pink plum-shaped fruit)

in Domestic Tomato
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 pre-ha...read more

in Citron Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
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 mu...read more

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