First Tomato Unboxing

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Cut into the “Black Krim” I harvested the other night. Fully ripened. Was tasty. But I’m not sure it’s a Black Krim, after checking some images online. No “black” in this tomato at all. Mystery tomato.

Black Krim?


Red, not Black :)

Compare to an actual Black Krim, found online:

Harvested a partially ripe Black Krim tonight. Decided I’d better get it before some varmint did. Weighs in at 7.25 oz.

First 2011 Cucumber

First Earthbox Spacemaster Cucumber harvested today, weighing in at 12oz. Also got another Black Beauty Zucchini. Black Beauty is proving to be quite vigorous–growing much faster than the other squash I planted.
