Emcee:  Tomato Type:  Unmoderated
A lot of people, me included, are in to gardening. I'm really interested in tomatoes, as well as trees, flowers, shrubs, vegetables, you name it. Anyone else interested in a thread like this?

How about naming you favorite tomatoes? I'm partial to stupice for reliability and green grape for sweetness, flavor, and relative earliness. Besides those two, this year I'm trying Sasha's Altai, Galina, Ida Gold, German Gold, Garden Lime, Green Zebra, Imur Prior Beta, Ropreco Paste, and Purple Smudge.
And tell us your tricks. What do you use for fertilizer?

Hope to hear from you,

Tomato (what a coincidence!)
