Here's a pic of the first "haul" of the season. In front is Terhune, Post Office Spoonful (currant), Dotson's Lebanese Heart, Black Vernissage (died from wilt), Early Girls all along the back. Yum!

Thanks Randall! Your garden look fantastic as well!!

The Lithium Sunset has a wonderful flavor too!! Even the first pulled off the plant- it is sweet with a good kick of old-time tomato taste.

First three plants lost to TSWV: Olive Hill, DLH, and Rebel Yell. Hopefully these greenies ripen up to something that has enough flavor for a salad... prayers appreciated for no further damage

I sure hope the rest of your garden remains unaffected Darin. Those fruits are beautiful! Making me jealous as I am still a ways away from the first "real" tomato of the year

Thank you Karen! I hope so too. Spinosad is on the way via Amazon, so I'll do my best to wipe out those little SOB's.

I noticed that you have a very nice colorful mulch, is it a natural color?

Hi Gin-

It is a Vigoro red mulch. The color lasts all season, and starts to fade after a year or so. It does a good job of preventing soil splash-back when I water the plants.

Sgt. Pepper's. The ripe example (12 oz) was allowed to ripen on the vine, and hidden from the direct sun. The other was pulled early (a rabbit was spotted on the premises), and has always had direct sunlight. Check out the anthocyanin expression in the shoulders! I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful tomato!
