What are your favorite spaghetti and pizza sauce recipes? (Particularly those that involve your own homegrown tomatoes that you've canned.) I never really used a strict recipe, but it struck me that there are probably some pretty good ones out there. I usually like to do something like the fo...read more

Buckbee's New 50-day tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I'm growing Buckbee's New 50-day tomato, this year (2019). It has decent-sized fruits with thick walls and mild, but good, flavor. The plant is small and has an open habit (so you can see the fruit without moving leaves or branches). The plant was shaded by other plants; so there was little risk...read more

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, P...read 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;...read 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 g...read 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,...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
