    Bought a plant at the farmers' market. Anyone ever try it?

    I have never tried it so had to do a search and it looks like you've got yourself a winner. A big meaty juicy heirloom. Please let us know how it does for you. Heirlooms always seem to be harder to maintain, but SO worth it in flavor!

    Thanks, Keewee. I'm looking forward to it. "Abe" has replaced a Black Krim that inexplicably withered and died soon after planting, although the other two heirlooms and the Early Girl flourished and already are blooming. For some reason I have had no luck with Krims, despite the fact that they are supposed to do well here.

    Well at least you can say that you are planting outdoors! My little maters are still in the sunny window and probably won't be ready to go out for a few more weeks.
    Ya know, there is just no guessing right with tomatoes sometimes. And this from a plant that is supposed to be (almost) a weed. This year, I got some Uncle Mark Bagby seeds from Baker Creek and they were listed as a Kentucky-based heirloom, so I assumed they would do well here ~ that surely remains to be seen! I always have the best luck with some seeds that I save from my neighbor's tomatoes. She has been growing them and saving the seeds for decades and they never fail. They seem to be some type of brandywine. So far, those and the Uncles are looking about the same (seedling-wise).

    I've never grown that particular variety, but from what I read about it, it should be an excellent tomato, very disease- and pest-resistant, with a good flavor.

    I planted three of them this year too, and so far the plants look good with lots of tomatoes in the green stage. The plants were pretty puny when I put them in so am surprised they look as good as they do. We have a drip system and then covered in plastic, so NO weeding ~ yay!
    Yes, Zeldaz ~ we wanna know how yours did last year!

    Like most tomatoes here, ole Abe crapped out when the summer heat hit. It's in the 100s in June here. The only ones that do well in this climate seem to be cherry and grape type tomatoes. I have a plant called "Phoenix" this year that I have high hopes for, it's bred to produce in desert temperatures. Only problem is that it's a Monsanto breed. Lots of green fruit on it, still flowering, too. All my other regular tomatoes are pooping out like Abe did, but we're hanging in there and hoping for the best. The grape tomatoes are pumping out loads of fruit, very sweet.
