They are both pretty early. But neither like roundup!
Oh that stuff

I wanted to grow Stick again this year, but I couldn't get enough germination to get a curl-type leaf modification. Well, my friend DDSack sent me these three seedlings via the mail, along with seed, and they made it here just fine! They are loving their little fiber cups until I plant them in the ground. I am going to triangulate them around an 8ft stake and braid them as they climb, it should be a great conversation piece for the photo gallery! Thanks Dee!!!

What do you mean? You have Stick seeds that don't show stick leaf curl?

Braided might be pretty & artistic. I'm interested in seeing them.

That’s a fun idea. How tall do they get?

Nan- according to Dee, 2 or 3 out of 10 seeds will give a RL plant, which is definitely not interesting if grown out. In my case, I planted 3, and all 3 were RL, so I guess I just got unlucky. These are neat little plants that can get 8 feet or more in length. They can be fastened to a trellis or to a stake quite easily, as their lateral width is only a few inches at most.

That is so cool!

Please keep posting pics! I have never really seen a stick.

Your lovely flower pots will certainly compliment all.
Happy gardening!

hl2601- here's a few pics from last year. These tomatoes are about the size of a golf ball, and actually taste quite good- very tangy. Mine topped out at about 7 feet or so.

Darin, I'm just glad the plants made it there in good shape. Looking forward to seeing how your braid pattern works! Your last year's plant was the tallest Stick I've ever seen! They must like it at your house.

A few pics from today, 5-19-18. I still have 8 unknown varieties due to a mix up- 3 PL and 5 RL varieties. The PL possibilities are Daniel Burson, Rebel Yell, and Lucky Cross. The RL choices are DLH, GGWT, Bear Creek, Terhune (AKMark 5.42), and Not Purple Strawberry (NPS). I have good fruit set on several of these. Finally got 3 Stick plants (curly leaf) in the ground, surrounding an 8 ft Vigoro stake. First two pics are Karma Pink (thanks Karen and Marsha!).

Garden flourishing 5-29-18, but notice the two empty spots- had to pull Zena's Gift and an unidentified PL plant (choices are Daniel Burson, Rebel Yell, Lucky Cross), due to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV). Leaf pics are Karma Pink vs. Pink Brandywine (larger). Last picture is Early Girl, along with Jack and Sarge, my garden helpers .
