Based off of things I've read (I do a lot of tomato research), and some things I've grown, I'm going to make a list of particularly notable tomato varieties here. I've only tried some of these. They're not all my personal favorites, but in my opinion, they're all notable, and if you grow them al...read more

by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I put what I think are some Aunt Molly's ground cherries (from a volunteer plant) in some spots so they would volunteer there next year. It might be crossed with other ground cherries. It got bigger and tastier fruits than the Ammon Martin's and Rachel's Favorite ground cherries that I started f...read more

Possible GMO tomato marketed to home gardeners: Endless Summer

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Although the Endless Summer tomato (a genetically engineered one from a really long time ago) doesn't appear to have had success in grocery stores, it appears that Burpee has an Endless Summer tomato that remarkably has a similar shelf-life description (except it lasts even longer!) It's said t...read more

Some people think wonderberries are black nightshade, such as is seen on one of the posts in the following thread on another forum: https://www.homesteadingtoday.com/threads/anyone-ever-grow-wonderberry-plants.298177/ However, I've never found any evidence that they are black nightshade, othe...read more

I found my first worm in a wonderberry (in all the three years I've grown it). It was late in the season. It appeared to be the same as the worms that get in over-ripe blackberries.

Bee in wonderberry flower

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I saw a bee dangling from a wonderberry flower (by its hands) for a really long time. I thought maybe it was pollinating it, but I waited, and waited, and it was still there. So, I attempted to help it out, and as soon as it saw me get close, it stopped and flew off. So, it wasn't stuck, it seem...read more

End of season tomato harvest, 2019

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Well, I harvested most of the tomatoes, ripe and unripe, with the exception of the damaged ones (there were lots of those). Usually we seem to have loads of tomatoes at the end, but we got lots throughout the season, and less at the end, this time. I thought the first freeze was going to be on W...read more

Better Boy F1 tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
A friend of mine gave me two Better Boy F1 tomatoes (I had never tried them before). The fruits were unexpectedly firm, but after cutting them open, I didn't feel like I was eating firm tomatoes. Anyway, the taste was excellent. I can see why people like it so much. Lots of tomato flavor. The...read more

A friend of mine gave me some Juliet F1 tomatoes, some from her garden, and some which had been refrigerated (which a friend had given her). Anyway, I tasted them and really liked them. They're quite sweet with nice flavor. I saved F2 seeds from most of the fruits. Unfortunately, I put the...read more
