A half harvest. The summer vegetables are ripening so fast that we are picking twice a week now.
All these tomatoes! We have three 60-foot rows – 132 plants – at least a dozen varieties. They are all from seedlings our volunteers have grown at home. Our favorite this year might be Mountain Rouge, a delicious AAS Winner. It’s a large beefsteak-type tomato, red, with very high productivity, and disease resistance. One to grow again next year.
The fancy tomato in the last two photos is a beautiful new AAS Winner called Buffalo Sun. The fruits are huge and beautifully colored with red, orange, and yellow. Another one of our favorites!
We planted 130 tomatoes of many different varieties. Our seedlings are all grown from seed by our volunteers.
