I cant even imagine the crazy amount of work you must have in the spring Mark. It’s all I can manage to keep up with my little garden
Will be interested to see them later on

Things are moving alone nicely. The plants are about 8 feet now, I need to get all of the bottom trusses ripened so we can lower the plants, that is my biggest concern right now. We have ate several Mat-Su Express, a couple have been off the charts delicious. Fruit set is good, ferts are 1700ppm, pH 6.2-6.4 average. I tried to get a pic where you can see how the two plants per 5 gallon set in the containers.

Looks good. What is your ppm conversion factor? 0.7?

Thanks, the cold is wearing off now. It is actually 0.74 when we do the math.

Default Report and pics

Plants are doing good. Ate a Bloody Butcher x Yellow Brandywine f1 today, it was good. Also had a PL Black Krim x PL Early Girl F 3 it was a bit off, strong, but it had an odd taste. Mat-Su today was delicious and complex. We are moving along getting ready to start putting tomatoes in other greenhouses now.

Here is a good pic of two plants in a five gallon container where we can see both and what they are capable of producing. The last one is BB X YBW

We have had some sun lately, now we are getting some real fruit setting. We are consistently watering twice per day now, the plants love it.
