VIRGINIA SWEETS TOMATO
FIRST TIME GROWING VIRGINIA SWEETS TOMATO
Could not have picked a worst year to try some new tomato varieties. Mother Nature is not supplying enough water neither is our well. We have had to select what gets watered and what does not, Virginia Sweets got high on the list. So far we have only eaten one and it was absolutely delicious nice and sweet but tomato tasting. We have the one in the photos ready to consume and we will this evening, will add a photo of it sliced up for consumption. Started out with 18 tomato plants, some critter ate 6 of them and somehow without a lot of water 5 are still surviving. one of them is the Virginia Sweets. Looks like we are not going to get much if any rain. Garden chores for this week will include watering the tomato plants and other selected choices.
We are seeing the effects of the dry hot weather. Some trees and shrubs are shutting down others just are not doing well. Was not able to do a lot of work in the gardens this summer. Now that I am able too late for some of the plants. Lots of clean up and adding mulch, compost, new beds.
That’s it for this post. Time to work in the gardens. See you next time.
