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.

Mine did OK. They got beat to hit by hail driven by 60 MPH wind. Then all the friut got eaten by tomato beatles that I couldn't seem to kill. After the beetles moved on, CHRIST they produced a lot.

My cucumbers did really well too. Mrs Buehler445 said they were done after the hail. I told her they have some roots and good fertility, give them some miracle grow and a lot of water and see what happens. They bounced back nicely.

My peppers didn't do shit. I think my soil may be too high in PH. I'll lay down some more composted shit and try again, but I think it may not work.

After it freezes, I'm going to til in the mulch and put on a bunch more composted cow manure. That should get me some good organic matter in the soil for next year.

Ever had your garden soil tested by your extension office? It's easy to overkill with additives.

No. But it is alkali soil and the best way to combat that is with phosphorus and organic matter.

I have so many dang tomatoes I can't eat 'em all. My wife brings bags of 'em to work just to give away. Ate so many BLTs I got sick of bacon. Now I just put giant, fat slices on bread with mayo, salt & pepper. Greek salads with double tomato every night. There's dozens of Black Krims & Pineapples & Brandywines ripe on the vine right now. Gonna plant fewer plants next year....

Buy a bunch of ball jars and bottle em. Diced tomatoes. Tomato sauce. etc...

I'm just a proponent of the lost art of bottling.

For those of you w/some space ready for next year...plant a few dozen spinach seeds and some kale. They'll get a running start this fall, and while they'll look like crap this winter they usually 'winter over' and start growing again a lot earlier than you might expect - say late Feb/early March. You can have the first salad in town. At one time Lenexa and Olathe had a ton of Belgian farmers who mostly grew spinach for the Spinach cannery over in Lenexa. While it doesn't always work in fimbulwinter conditions, I remember being shocked at how well spinach wintered over.
Bok Choy and other oriental greens also grow well now - some of the mustard-family plants will go from seed to table still. If your garden center has them available, you can plant pre-started cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onion plants, etc...most of the brassica will keep growing til hard freeze. Google 'fall garden' and read up on some of these, it's a good time to save a little extra money...and I always liked putting fresh home grown veggies out at Thanksgiving.

Where did you get your seeds from?

After a cold, wet June (we had snowfall in the valley in the beginning of June), my tomatoes regressed in July, where we had four weeks of 90-95 degree days and no moisture. Absolutely minimal bud sites. Out of all the tomatoes I planted, I got approximately 60 full sized tomatoes. Horrible year for the garden this year. Everyone I talked to out here in SLC suffered pretty much the same fate.

Oh well, not much you can do when Mother Nature throws you a curve, and you've just got to look forward to the next season.

Seriously, squeeze the guts of a few of them black krim in a cup for a few days, then dry em on a newspaper and send those seeds to me. You can fit a lot of seeds in a #10 envelope, eh?
