  • The verdict is in 2010 tomato trials

    Since 2006 I have been bringing my personal tomato trials (and tribulations) to my readers.

    I’ll start with the good news. By far, the winners this year are Marglobe, Black Prince and Roma. Both are still clean, producing fruit and ripening efficiently despite the heat (although the last ripe flush did occur when we had a run of days in the 80’s).

    I have two brothers, one deceased who was two years older than me and my brother John who is two years younger than I. 

    Yes, the middle child, which explains much I know but never mind that.

    We also have a sister, Sarah Jane, who is the youngest of the four and lives in North Carolina.
