I use Promix BX, I add a cup of Dolomite lime, and 3 cups of Tomato Tone. I follow the written EB instruction pamphlet exactly.
In the heat and height of the season I add water once per day. Right now it's every other.
I love this thread. So beautiful and so informative.
Do you fertilize with other things besides lime and tomato tone along the growing season? Thanks.

Yes, once per week a teaspoon each of calcium nitrate, and magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) are added down the EB tube. Tomatoes are heavy feeders.

So several have ripened enough now to photograph. I haven't tasted these I am posting today because once you cut them you have to do something with them in a hurry.

Biyskaya Roza from my saved seeds from last year. I loved the flavor, and there are 7 or eight large fruit in this first round, and more flowers, healthy strong plant. This one weighs 12 oz. Thank you Ella for the seeds last year.

Green Gables F6, GWR, last year I grew the F4, sent F5 seeds to my friend Timothy, these very large but not very productive fruit are the result. This is a PL indet. With flavor in the F4 that rivaled Cherokee Lime, and that is saying something! The F4 had off the hook production.

Owen's Purple, cranking out the purple 6 oz fruit, just loaded. Indet RL.Thank you Darlene for the seeds.

Pruden's Purple, luscious Brandywine like pink fruit on a indet PL plant. Loaded. I love this and grow it every year. 1.5 lbs!

Here's a few more: no taste reports yet.
The first 3 are of a complex cross I am growing generations of in the winter to advance it more quickly, working name Prime. Note the blunt heart, and pretty stripes. Not stable, no seeds available yet.
Rostova, seeds were a bonus from a TGS purchase. These are very productive slightly wispy RL indet plants, fruit weigh about 8 or 9 oz. I tasted an earlier fruit from these red hearts, it was sweet, meaty, yummy. 8.5/10
Akers West Virginia, Gardenboy is my neighbor, he said this was excellent, he gave me the seeds. Thank you Douglas.The first 2 are really large. RL, indet, medium production.

Girl Girl's Weird Thing, left one is riper. These stunning fruit are large plant is super strong, very productive, flesh is purple, taste is at least a 9/10. Plant is a RL, Indet.
