hey marc! you have got to have the freakiest looking tomatoes EVER! those green ones remind me of avacado.

welcome back - we missed you.

Hi Marc - I thought I'd leave a note on your blog and say that I never knew that Early Girls were tomatoes! Now I know what the Early Girl Eatery restaurant in Asheville, North Carolina is named after! I thought it was just a cute little name!

Like you, our early girl tomatoes produced first--and we're still picking! I prefer hybrids because there is so much more variety, but you can't beat the production of an early girl! I will always have one, just so that I can enjoy the tomatoes as long as possible.

Green tomatoes...wow....with the price of tomatoes here I'm growing several plants to feed my addiction now. However, there might be some more room : )

My conditioning is still telling my brain that those are not ripe enough to eat......

Wow, "Early Girl" is also late girl...cool. That green tomato looks very delicous and meaty. Is there a difference in the acid content like with yellow tomatoes?

We didn’t grow any green varieties this year, but we did grow some yellow ones. Our beefsteak tomatoes were huge last year, but the inclement weather this summer (a lot of rain) didn’t help matters. Some of them did get big though and very, very tasty!

Sara and I do our gardening on Gabriola Island on the mild West Coast of Canada. Sara grows the flowers, I tend the vegetables. This year we grew squash, zucchini, broccoli, tomatoes, sweet peppers and hot peppers, as well as kale, peas, and beans.

We feed our plants a 100% organic diet. A Canadian company makes an outstanding fertilizer called Iguana Juice, Grow and Bloom. We also use some of their other products to inoculate our plants against pathogens and diseases (Scorpion Juice) and strengthen our roots with beneficial fungi and bacteria (Piranha and Tarantula).

Don’t be put off by the exotic names. These products are great! Visit our blog and see the pictures, if you don’t believe me!

Happy Autumn,
Tim and Sara

Those tomatoes look soooo good! But, I have to ask...where is the mayo on that sandwich??!

I really like Caspian Pink...hope it did well for you (that one in the pictures looks pretty yum!).

Hmmm, I will have to rethink Early Girl...especially as she is so productive for such a long time!

Take care now.
