Default Goluboy Les

Hello all,

I've been AWOL around here since I unexpectedly had to become a caregiver for my father in September right as I was beginning my busy work travel season. I've been treading water for months now, and my fall tomato garden went neglected.

I'm sitting here in my office looking a potatoes and garlic I never planted, as I only have a community garden plot and an earthbox garden at the shop of our family business. I cannot get the time to get to either, and I am feeling guilty about the extreme neglect.

Then last week I was delighted to receive a surprise package from the lovely folks at Delectation of Tomatoes - four packets of a Russian variety called Goluboy Les. Is anyone familiar with this variety?

I have two packets I can share with anyone who is interested in trying it, just PM.

But thank you to Delectation of Tomatoes for the well-timed reminder that I need to get back to the garden, and the gift of an incentive to do so.

From the seed packet:

Small, spherical fruits with stunning deep purple color where are exposed to full sunlight; deep brick red inside. Unlike many "blue" tomatoes, flavor is excellent: rich, juicy and delicious, especially since it's also once of the earliest to ripen; 69 days. Indeterminate, regular leaf vines are impressively productive and produced well even after several light frosts and under harsh conditions. Seeds from Natalia Khilenko of Armavir, Russia; translates to "Blue Forest."

Would love to hear from anyone here in the SF Bay Area who would also like to try these. I'd happily share.

I believe the intent of the gift was to get a sense of how they grow regionally.

I intend to offer seeds to others at my community garden plot to help with this.

How exciting to receive those seeds, with the incentive to get your hands back into the dirt again - perhaps it is time to 'ground' more, especially with life's changes!

Best wishes to you for the New Year!!

Goluboy Les (Голубой Лес) is an American antho tomato variety called Bosque Blue from J&L Gardens (New Mexico, USA).
The name has been translated from Spanish/English to Russian.
