Robin, I did not realize how extra challenging your growing season was! And here I thought I had it bad with a shorter season than most. Now I am really amazed at how much you continue to accomplish with your dwarf project grow outs.

I don't plant as many tomatoes as some of you folks and they are all hybrids. Early Girl, Beefsteak, Porter House and Super Sweet 100's. I may get a couple of Big Beef plants closer to planting time, they did not have any seeds for them locally and I love the taste of them. I will keep 8 to 10 of the 27 plants and give the rest away, I hate to snip off the ones I won't use.
Fist two pics from 04/04/15 and 04/10/15 one angle and next two also from same dates different angle.

Must be nice to have green tomatoes already, mine aren't even in the ground yet and won't be for over a month.

this is Rosella purple




and this is Lithium Sunset, the one I am looking forward to the most, very strong too and nice leaves

Early Girl makes her way to the second half of Texas tomato cage.
Only three more rungs to the top and the finish line.
It's Early Girl by a leaf.

Neptune, a determinate open pollinated variety developed by University of Florida for hot weather. Supposed to be resistent to Bacterial Wilt. I figured Id give it a try and see how it does.
