Picked my first tomatoes today, they were still warm from the sun when I brought them inside. We have lots more coming in, these are Russian Black Krims. My wife is going to visit her Mother so I sent them as a gift to her.

Your tomatoes look great the "black" tomato plants we have are like yours but not ready yet but they soon will be producing ripeness. 

Here is what we have here:

        Supersweet 100's near the deck
   Black Cherry
   Mortgage Lifter
   Black Krim

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Picked a bunch of tomatoes yesterday and this is a grouping of some of the prettier ones. May have to do a watercolor of this.

So, I have some garlic that I forgot about that is growing all kinds of spiky leafy greens and starting to flower. I thought the plant was supposed to die back about a month ago and then be harvested. Should I pull them? Use them for garlic scapes? Let them flower? I think that it may be too late and that the bulb is probably minimal since the energy went into the huge plants.

Thoughts?
