sorry about the above . i deleted a few pics from my albums and they disappear here as well ..
anyway , ..my ground here , can't call it soil as its not , is very deep beach sand , an old sand dune !
its gutless ! if i don't water twice a day in summer then it dries completely to a depth of 5-6 inches .. also its extremely hydrophobic ..so every 2 or 3 years i clay it and it sort of makes it soil !
10 years i've gardened this patch and trailer load after trailer load i've put into this ..kelp , cow manure , sheep manure , chook shit , pea hay , etc etc etc ..tonnes of it ! top pic is showing my compost piles which i now do in situ .
but i do ok ..i grow more than enough for ourselves , plus half the town , plus my large worm farm .. oh for some deep fertile loam !

I just tried cross pollinating some tomatoes for the second time.... the first time failed, hopefully it should work.

I took pollen from Cherokee Chocolate and put it on some Opalka, two different shaped fruits so i can be certain if the cross was successful, once i plant them next season.
I'm pretty happy.

This is Black Beauty tomato, i haven't tasted them yet but i think they take a while to ripen and should get even darker, but bright red inside

I will have some different varieties ripening soon.

nice looking tomato ignignokit. almost impossible to get tomatoes to maturity here because of fusarium wilt ..
the weather is warming up ever so slightly and things are just taking off , corn especially !

This was my first little harvest of a few different types of tomatoes this year.
(I got some of the best tomatoes eaten from the inside by grubs. )



I have some more varieties and some peppers too, i will share my taste test results one day.

Thanks Rod, have you had a look at Tomatofest?
They have a few varieties that are dwarf indeterminate and supposed to vigorous and set heavy, early fruit with better taste than most of the fast fruiting determinate varieties.
I'm hoping to try some soon.

i haven't tried tomatofest ignignokt but here we have diggers seeds which grow and sell heirloom seeds online and mail order . i've tried many varieties which are supposedly wilt resistant but to no avail . i'm afraid the whole area is affected .
my tomatoes here are slowly , one by one succumbing to it .
i'm very envious of your tomatoes and hope that when we move that we can begin growing them again , nothing like eating one straight out of the garden !

Hear is a garden I made out of recycled wood and rocks I found. Mostly pallets. I call it the coffee mushroom garden.
