Garden is really taking off now! Turbo DLH is still leading the pack in size and flowering, while Terhune and Lithium Sunset are the stars of fruit set.

Fruit shown are Lithium Sunset (boat shaped) and Not Purple Strawberry (NPS).

I just got back from Spartanburg. Wish I had remembered you from last year and contacted you and came and looked at your garden.

This is first time I have been on the forum in some time.

Percho- welcome back! And yes, the next time you're in Spartanburg, please do stop in and say hello. I would LOVE to show someone my garden

Vader- exactly! I've got my Daconil and Neem at the ready. I have so many active blossoms that all I really need now is a sunny and windy day. I have had almost no pollinators this year! Haven't seen a bumble or anything yet!

Same here. It is very concerning...it's like they are all just gone. I planted a pollinator garden this year and still only see Tiny sweat bee type insects. Last year bumblebees were everywhere.

Gorgeous garden dude! Seems us Carolina boys know how to grow some maters. Btw I meant to mention the electric toothbrush trick for pollinating, if you aren't already doing it, it does help. I can't wait to see how big your tomato tree gets

Vader- I'm buzzing away just about every day, with neighbors peering between the blinds in awestruck confusion!

Pics from 6-1-17. Sgt. Pepper's is a great plant and a great tomato visually! The fruit at the top of the plant, which are exposed to direct sunlight, show the blue anthocyanin in the shoulders. Those fruit at the bottom of the plant, which are shaded, have lost the blue coloring. Finally, my wife playing around in the tomato patch, dwarfed by the monster DLH. LOL

Darin can you let me know the DTM for you on Sgt. Peppers when you get ripe fruit please. I may try to grow it for fall planting.
