JayBone's 7/8/13 Mortgage Lifter Tomatoes & Jalapenos

Discussion in 'Common Vegetables' started by jaybone, Jul 8, 2013.

  1. Early Girl, Brandywine, & Roma tomatoes are annual staples in my veggie beds.
    Each year I add a new tomato variety to the garden..
    This year's addition is one called Mortgage Lifter.
    Here's a picture taken 6/25/13;

    Today I was fortunate enough to be able to harvest some.
    This is a shot of today's tomato harvest with yesterdays jalapeno harvest;

    Had one that weighed in at 13 ounces and another at 12 ounces.
    Here's the 13 ouncer;

    Man, I love the summer garden!

    Sweet......my peppers are doin ok and setting lots of flowers but the tomato is no where near ready to set fruit.
  4. We had a heat wave over the fourth of July week (105 deg F and over everyday for a whole week) that slowed things way down in my garden.
    Cucumbers are still alive but show that they're under a lot of stress.
    Pepper, Tomato, and Cucumber blossoms dried up and fell off.
    Things should start picking up again now that temps have lowered a bit.
  5. Nice veggies! My Early Girls are about the size of a qtr...not too good for the weather to be changing in a few weeks!
