Which ones are you growing this season?

I've had mine in the ground since mid Feb. I didn't overwinter any so they are all still very small plants.

This year I have:
San Marzano (3)
Phoenix hybrid (3)
Soldacki (3)
Bella Rosa hybrid (1)
Red Alert hybrid (1)
Black Cherry (1)
Super Sweet 100's (1)

I started last year with the Phoenix, Bella Rosa and Red Alert but lost them all before they set any fruit. This is my first attempt with the Soldacki. Hopefuuly this will be a more successful year than the last 2 which were total busts. :o)

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘...Holy Crap ...What a ride!'

I have to start over. I planted two in the ground in January. Guess what. They froze. Both had some really nicely set large tomatoes and they froze. I'm going to the nursery this weekend to buy a couple more. I'll let ya know what I'm able to pick up.

Very nice selection, Dan. I'm sure we'll see pics of your yield in a few weeks!!! Yum! Thumbs up

I overwintered some but lost them in the second freeze. They were 5' tall and covered with toms. I was crushed. So now I have Zappotec, Aussie, Red Yellow Cap, Black from Tula, Cherokee Purple, Black Krim, Bloody Butcher, Super Sweet 100, Black Cherry, Yellow Pear, and Ace. I put in a couple of Tomatillo's too.
The reason most people fail instead of succeed is because they give up what they want most for what they want at the moment.
