i think i saw a pic of those black tomatoes also this evening.... i bet they are good... i was always told the redder the better for taste... which i have found to be wrong sense this past summer when i fell in love with the fruit stand guys tomatoes... but i would imagine that the black ones have all kinds of flavor. i would be interested to see what the white ones taste like too.I am ready to plant by Bibb Lettuce and green onions. I can make a meal of that wilted in hot bacon grease and a touch of white vinegar and served up with corn bread melting in butter.
I plan to plant Roma beans and Purple Hull peas (a southern thing) and about a 1/4 acre of Silver Queen corn. I raised the "Bodacious" corn last year. The Silver Queen takes longer but has longer ears.
My friend raised some kind of oblong shaped black tomatoes last year. They did not look all that good, but were quite yummy. I need to find out what they were.
im thinking about doing with the corn the same as i did with the blueberries and pole beans. last year i planted in big rubbermaid tubs i had poked some holes in for draining.... thought it was a great idea to keep the weeds out of my plants and it work really well with both. but those are commonly grown out of five gallon buckets.... i wonder if i could do the same with corn... i have like twenty or so empty tubs right now.... i just wonder what all i could get to grow well in them.... thought about things like carrots and beets.... would keep critters from snatching them from below.... plus if i kept them on the porch.... they would have to get past the attack cat and the am staff first.
