Replacing Tomato

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

The one original seedling that I planted early in March that was still left in the garden (I replaced all the others a couple of weeks ago) has done nothing. It’s coming out and will be replaced by a Black Krim, which was the most interesting variety I could find at my local nursery.

I have also lost the diagram I made of the garden that indicated what was planted where, so now I am not sure which plant is which (except for Japanese Black Trifele, which has an unusual leaf form (“potato leaf” I believe is the term)). But I think this is the list of varieties I will have planted after replacing the last of the early seedlings: Black Cherry, White Currant, Sungold, Early Girl, Japanese Black Trifele and Black Krim. If I am lucky enough to get any fruit from any of the plants, I’ll be able to discern the variety at that time.
