36. Oh, fabulous!

I hope to do Cherokee Purple next year. I grew it once before, but didn't have optimal gardening conditions and didn't have much experience. The very few tomatoes I got were so good, though.

This year I have Homestead, Mr. Stripey, Parks Whopper, Big Boy (?) and two others I can't remember the name of, one of them a cherry/grape tomato. The Parks Whopper and Big Boy were my mother's choice, and so far have produced nice tomatoes.

I've been processing tomatoes like crazy for the past few days, getting ready to make sauce. I'm putting a lot of the cherry/grape tomatoes away as diced tomatoes, at least the ones I'm not eating.

The garden is going to need to be much, much bigger next year.

I may be thinking of someone else, but weren't you at one time over on the Garden Web, NRL? I remember reading about Cherokee Purple there, which is why I tried it when I found some plants (at Lowe's).
