More tomatoes picked today, some new Delicious and Black Cherry, I haven't tried either of those yet. Otherwise, more of the same kinds as last time.

Also, a photo of some Barry's Crazy Cherry.

I didn't like the results from the tomato screen, so I bought the salsa screen to make sauce. I don't mind seeds.

I had high hopes for the "tigers", I tried blush last year, from another farmers market vendor, and liked them. I grew lucky tiger, pink tiger, blush, and green tiger. Lucky tiger is gross and mushy, pink tiger is the same, blush is better, kinda bland but pretty good, not mushy at least. But green tiger was slow to get started, so I didn't try them until last night. They were excellent! Sweet and tasty, not mushy. I think the heat might have made a difference, it's far hotter now than when the others started ripening. It's gonna be 98 today. So I think I'll try the others again before writing them off.

I also just tried my first McKinley a couple days ago, excellent! KBX is another later one, and it's tasty, but it's the only one of the big tomatoes getting blossom end rot. The only one I haven't tried yet is Berkeley Tie Dye, that one should be ripe today. Oh, and Delicious, I haven't tried that one either. Bear Creek, Mocha Splash, Pineapple, Cherokee Green, and Captain Lucky continue to be very productive and good.

Ok, see, I was right. I tried them again, and they are all excellent. Just needed some heat. Indigo Cherry Drops were grown in the same spot and they've always been great. So maybe some just need the heat more than others. Juliet are like that, many people hate them, but they taste good too me, especially after a few weeks.

These ones are salsa bound. I'm gonna try freezer salsa. I'm going to roast all my ingredients in the oven and send them through the salsa screen on my victorio strainer. I don't like chunky salsa so the texture should be just right.
