'Siletz' Tomato


Here is our booming tomato patch. The indoor sprouted early Siletz are performing wonderfully, but no ripe ones yet... probably because the plants are overloaded. I can wait though...

Another funny thing this year: we tried to start cucumbers indoors, in some grass mesh seed cups. The story is that the roots should be able to grow through the cups, and the cukes can be transplanted without hurting the plant. We've had some trouble with this though, and about half of our cukes were greatly stunted in their early growth. Our direct-seeded cukes are actually outperforming some of the ones that were started indoors! We won't be using the seed cups again.
