Tomatoes in the ground

Finally finished up with planting all my tomatoes for the season. I've been working on this for two weeks and had to cover the ones I put into the ground probably prematurely two weeks ago several times. I'm hoping that any chance of hard freeze is gone at this point and I don't have to worry about it from here on out.

Varieties:
Hybrids:
Better Boy
Big Boy
Early Girl
Lemon Boy
DX-52-12
La Roma II
Viva Italia
Sweet Tangerine
Moscow

Heirlooms:
Mortgage Lifter
Black
Pink Brandywine
Red Brandywine
Brandywine
Big Rainbow
White Wonder
Amish
Black Krim
Green Zebra
Fourth of July
Rutgers
Mr. Stripey
Yellow Pear
Taxi
Chocolate Cherry
Rose Quartz

Peppers also went in with Bells in Purple, Yellow, Red, Orange and Green, along with Thai, Jalapeno, Cayenne, Habanero, Anaheim and Serrano.

The trellis blew on top of my spice garden and took out my dill.

Also just found out that my neighbor accidentally mowed over several of my small blackberry plants.

The curse of man is alive and well.

I assume some tomato plants will survive if you just unfold the stalk and tie it up again?

Tomato plant has a few blooms right now.. no fruit yet.
I've got two snap pea plants in the ground, one pod on one of the plants.
Cucumber plant has huge leaves but isn't crawling up the protective fence.. no idea what to do there.
Bell pepper plant is growing straight up at a pretty good rate, but I have no idea whether there's fruit growing
Lost two tomato plants during the process (not sure why) and something dug up my jalapeno plant. Bet that critter had a nice night in whatever plant he calls a toilet!

How do I replant these veggies next year? Save some seeds? When I stated earlier in the thread that I'm a n00b at this gardening business, I mean EXTREME n00b. I grew up in apartments or small backyards. never really done the gardening thing; but, I'm motivated

Because I live on the top of a hill in the SD plain I get plenty of wind. I wrap the cages in plastic and it seems to have worked. Plants are getting stronger and are almost ready for the plastic to come off. Large threat of heavy storms through the weekend so I'll wait to remove it next week.
Early Sunglow is a early variety (63 days) of sweet corn that will shade you young plants from wind and sun,this variety is a shorter type that you can plant closer(6in or so).
I put acouple rows of silver queen hybrid about 6-8 ft from my tomatos to shade them in late summer seeing how it gets to 7ft in aug. I also put my rows running east to west cause as the sun tracks across the sky later in the year my yard trees will give more shade than in early spring. to much heat will bring on the blight in late summer.

man that sucks. if they arent broken just resecure em. My best one that laid over i saved and its 5ft tall now. If you can find cattle/hog panels and t-post make a all weather trellis. you might spray and prune for early blight after a week or so. I dont like any leaves touching the bare soil. If you had em mulched already youll be better off.

go back acouple pages and there are post on saving seeds, but make sure to read the article i posted on the diffrence between hierloom & hybrids and cross pollination. Its important to get that down 1st if you want them to come true next season.

ya ive got buy loads of em. no ripe ones yet.
harvested leaf lettuce(2),radish(2),sweet peas(1). brussels didnt make it leaflopper took em out. Peppers are soso. got a nice row of carrots,green onions(almost ready) and pole beans coming on and an insane amount of yellow squash and zucchini. Couple rows of early corn. Gonna plant some late hybrid corn and fall taters if i can find the seeds. The thought of peas & new potatoes for thanksgiving turned the light on.

went over and spent the morning pickin a oldtimers brain, he already had ripe ones on the vine & looked to be hundreds of green ones coming on. Pissed me off. He said 'MO dont try to compete with me i have a greenhouse'. Hes known me since i was 5 so i think he said that to strike a nerve. it worked, old fart ill show him.

I've never done potatoes. If you find the right seed for planting late, let me know. Or if you need someone to go in to make a better price.

My first year for potatoes, Lowes had a variety pack, growing like weeds. So far my tomato and pepper plants have survived the monsoon of the last week here in KC.

I've picked loads of blueberries, raspberries, potatoes. Lots of maters, but still green. Beats got taken out by rabbits and cabbage taken out by worms. Carrots look good, sweet onions look good, peppers look good. zuchini and cucumbers are a bit slow this year for me. Plants are good, but just now flowering

ya know, I'm not sure. I got the plants about 4 years ago at the farmers market here in town for $10 each. they seems to get more berries every year. I do know they are different varieties, cuz the berries are much larger on one and they taste a tad bit different too.
