Yes, I want them to ripen at the same time and the balcony charm takes 120 days! Nothing charming about that!


It will be very cool, growing two determinate varieties together...one yellow and the other red! I'm gonna grow them in one huge pot together.


Love to get seeds for a dwarf orange variety next and then grow three colors in one pot. That would be spectacular!

Oh yes, there are orange dwarf types available...I just don't have any. Easily obtained though. I'll get some next spring when I order more seeds.

Oh no... I've changed my mind again!


I remembered I grew totem before and wasn't big on it. So I've sown Gold Nugget and Sweetie together. This way I can weave the sweetie vine around and through the gold nugget to make it look like it's all one plant.


Totem is an upright type that would've just grown beside the gold nugget. This will create a nicer look in the long run and Sweetie takes 50 days until harvest!

Just took this shot a few minutes ago to show my "gold nugget" (left) and my "sweetie" (right) tomato seedlings emerging tonight in soil and eggshells...

WinkThanks, Raccoon!


Has anyone ever heard of, or grown a variety from Thai land called "Thai Pink Egg" tomato?


I just googled it and it looks super unique and amazing!



Someone from another site sent me 4 seeds for this variety!

It's a small determinate variety. Think I might sow a couple and see how they do. The tomatoes look like pink eggs!


I've got the metal halide high intensity light system to support all my tomato plants later when fall hits.

I was told by an experienced gardener years ago that you should never waste your time growing average or common tomatoes or peppers. Only grow the varieties that are unusual and the ones that would cost a fortune at the supermarket!
