When I grew Stupice several years ago, I had tomatoes on the first of July.

@1 She was hoping I was picking peas. She loves peas.

@2 Aren't Stupice great? They're not the best tomato I grow, but they are early, long lived, reliable, and prolific.

One Early Girl about the size of a racketball is going into salad tonight or tomorrow. Amazing growing year.

@4 I have Early Girl but nothing to harvest yet. They sure are growing like crazy! And they have a lot of blooms.
As for the taste of market tomatoes, I have found if I put them in a well lighted place (but not direct sun) for a few days, they taste much better. But nothing ever compares with homegrown.

Global warming is just awful. Seattle having any tomatoes at any time is a sign of the end. Frankly I think this is all an abomination and to gloat over and ask if we are jealous is simple unacceptable. Next you will suggest that an eggplant and a red pepper are something to be proud of. They are only ripening here because of global warming. Shocking just shocking. My tomatoes are doing fantastically too! I can hardly wait for my eggplants to turn purple.

My corn is knee high this Fourth of July and my tomatoes plants are monsters. The humidity is gone and the surface moisture burned off a few days ago. So it's now a fight with evaporation. Water, water and then water some more to keep everything in wet soil during this final growth stage.

My garden is Carpinito Brothers farmers market in Kent.

The Yakima beefsteaks are there and they're fantastic.

Tomatoes doing reasonably well. Stupices have flowers on 'em and Juliets, Alaskan Fancies are exploding with growth. Fancy varieties, enh. Freedom from supermarket lettuce is a nice plus, though. Should be a good 4 months.

For Northwest tomatoes Stupice is king, I give due credit to the Czechs for that one. Thankfully Milan Sodomka (RIP) was able to smuggle those seeds out from behind Communisms Iron Curtain.

My zucchini also bloomed today, strangely enough the flowers are all male. The heat has my cucumbers and winter squash are taking off, they have grown feet in just a few days. Odd though because the plant with the best placement is growing the least, so it goes.

@7
You have got me wishing I put in eggplant, in the past I have had good luck with "millionaire" they really would have taken off this year.

@2
Yea I have had that plant produce from late June to late October, pretty amazing

This tomato shit is starting to remind me of when microbrews first hit the scene, and everyone kept telling me they didn't taste like dog shit. Because microbrews!

I kept saying, no, I'm pretty sure that beer you just gave me tasted like dog shit. And they said, no, no, no, because microbrews! They seemed to believe it so hard that nothing could change their perception. Belief is so much more powerful than your senses.

In the end we had to agree to disagree. I stuck with my beer made by enormous corporations in Germany and Belgium and even France, and they continued to believe their microbrew crated by three lazy hipsters in Portland tasted like something other than canine fecal matter.

Some people can grow tomatoes that taste better than store bought. Most can't. Just like beer.

Oh wow look, you are talking out your ass with no knowledge of subject matter again, but no surprise there.

Enjoy your picked while green and forced to turn red by spraying with Ethylene gas tomatoes, but then again you do like shitty corporate euro beer, I bet it makes you feel cosmopolitan.

Even a rank amateur can grow better tasting tomatoes that the grocery store. It seems you like to look down on anyone who has any initiative, skill or DIY spirit. But your posting history does point to the fact that you would rather have your ass wiped by your political/corporate masters rather than take any personal responsibility

@17, that's funny, I just bought a lovely purple heirloom tomato at a supermarket, and it's lovely. I just ate half of it, and the other half's going on a burger in a while. I don't know the variety -- the biggest drawback of the pile of "heirlooms" in the store -- but it's a good one. A bit overripe, which is how I like 'em, dripping. It would go bad if I left it til tomorrow.

Oh wow Fnarf you were able to purchase a heirloom tomato at a market on lily white Phinny Ridge during the height of tomato season. I bet that makes you totally knowledgeable about industrial agriculture system that provides the tomatoes for the rest of the peasants.

But last time I checked this was the gardening thread and not the "What fnarf had to eat thread." So talk about gardening, or kindly fuck off.

Honestly you are getting almost as bad as Will in Seattle.

I am growing 6 varieties this year (Orange Blossom, Bush Champion, Yellow Tumbling Tom, Italian Gold Roma, Black Sea Man, and Indigo Rose), all determinate save one, so most likely we'll be eating a ton of tomatoes in late August. Sungolds are the most popular at the nursery where I work, but smart people are catching on to the Stupice. For the records, all of my zucchini flowers appear to be male except for one so far.

When I can find a good larger or pilsner I will order that. On tap is best. I've had a Urquell on tap at a place on South Lake Union that was so good I still remember it.

Around my neighborhood there's a big Polish and Russian contingent and lots of the European stores and supermarkets have the real stuff from Eastern Europe.

At this point all my tomatoes have set fruit except for my heirloom Anna Russian, which is struggling to grow even though my other five plants are the size of a Honda Civic.

@20, I may not be the world's greatest expert on tomatoes but I have read "Tomatoland" by Barry Estabrook, and I've donated money to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a tomato picker's union in Florida which fights for worker's rights, including thousands of victims of modern-day slavery even today. Which puts me about a million miles of a worthless cunt like you, who is not welcome here or anywhere on Slog but continues to shit all over everything every chance you get. So go fuck yourself.

The tomato came from Ballard, not Phinney, by the way.

My tomatoes are all in bloom (3 varieties), my peas have been supa producers this year, kohlrabi are coming along quite nicely. My full-sized pepper is starting to darken and others are pea sized (I'm giving them some nice verbal encouragement). Chard is bolting, onions are ready to harvest and carrots are coming along nicely. Beets are taking their time. They'll be great this fall. I need to decide about what to put in the ground this weekend when I pull the peas and chard.

@16,
At least microbrews and homebrews are interesting and memorable though, even the bad ones.

I've had fantastic microbrews and terrible microbrews. Their character is what makes them fun.

All the big name, big corporate beers? The best way I can think of to describe them is "forgettable."

@21
Nice, Indigo Rose and Yellow Tumbling Tom look amazing and Black Sea Man gave me a chuckle. I will definitely be trying the latter 2 next year. Due to a late move I had to go with a limited variety of starts rather than seed, I have sungold, early girl, sweet 100, sweet million and black krim, which all feels rather pedestrian next to your awesome collection.

@25
I love kohlrabi but for some reason have never had luck with it, also I am a bit disappointed in not getting peas in this year due to the move.

@24
Fnarf, I know of Immokalee, in fact I back when I was with Food not Bombs cooked food for their protest bus and was on the lines with them during the Taco Bell Campaign of the early 2000s. Yes they are being exploited, I know first-hand having worked with and met their members. So that is another reason to grow your own.

As for being a "worthless cunt" besides having in the past directly helped your treasured tomato workers. I spend close to 50 hours a week working in an ER, as well as being on a hospital safety committee working to reduce harm to our patients and staff, I am also on the hospital emergency management committee. Fact is that I do much more for my community than your internet bitching, name calling, and calls for harm against those who you disagree with ever will.

If you want to see a "worthless cunt" you better take a long hard look in the mirror. This was a civil thread about gardening before you and your bottom bitch ph'ngli showed up to shit all over it.

So again, I REPEAT, talk about gardening or get the fuck out.

Maybe it is time for another of your cry baby rage quit sessions. This blog is far more civil without you.

I do sincerly miss going to the Ballard Market, it is one of the best grocery stores in town.

@30, I don't need to get the fuck out. I am welcome here. You are not. You never have been. Besides, how can you possibly have time for gardening when you spend all your time clutching your guns and stalking around the neighborhood with them tucked into your trousers, muttering "come at me, bro" at random black people?

The Immokalee folks aren't just "being exploited", they are being enslaved. If you buy a boring-type supermarket tomato anywhere in the Eastern US outside of the local growing season, there is an excellent chance it was grown and picked by slaves. Honest-to-god slaves, unpaid, locked in trailers, unable to leave. West coast tomatoes are generally produced under better conditions, probably with exploited pickers -- all farm workers are -- but not enslaved.

It's fascinating to hear that you worked with Food Not Bombs. When did you become a right-wing shithead kook? Some kind of mental break? Drug overdose? Moral vacuity cave in?

The person who de-civilized this thread is you, when you decided to shit on Ph'nglui. Look at it above. He's a better person than you, no matter how many hours you spend frightening your coworkers in the ER. They do know about your gun fetish, yeah?

Can anyone recommend a good hockey summer camp? My friend's daughter has been obsessed about players' salaries and arena costs. I tell her, "Don't listen very much to those assholes talking that stuff. They are FAKE hockey fans, and only ACT like they are concerned about the city's interests." I think playing hockey might be good for her. Any ideas, Baconator?

Yea my manager bought an AR from me. A fair amount of Emergency Services staff own or carry. It comes from living in a world where you see beyond the veil of civilization.

Sorry to burst your bubble but I do not patrol my neighborhood for "black people." Do they even have those in Phinny? Besides my Food Not Bombs work I also started a chapter of Anti Racist Action not that it matters. Though I am currently working to get a Community Emergency Response Team together for my hood as well and promoting backyard gardening.

As for right wing. I have voted for one republican, Rob McKenna, in two elections. Generally I feel that both parties are out to fuck us, meanwhile turning people against each other over petty social issues.

Actually I am surprised that you gave money to a cause that gives a fuck about humanity, even if it is people far away that pick your food. I didn't really think you did anything besides disparage, insult and threaten others to feel morally superior. And to be fair, a feeling of Moral Superiority is the only reason you brought up Immokalee in the first place.

I spend a lot of time working for the good of this community, what do you do for it?

As for being welcome here, I have a feeling that they keep you and Will around for the same reasons.

Now get it into your assburger brain that this thread is for gardening or shut the fuck up.

My contributions to Slog number in the thousands. Many of them are valuable; the worst of them is better than the best of yours. You've never contributed anything but deranged turdbombs. But hey, get right on that committee work. Take good notes. Maybe you can take the lead in deciding whether the table should be on the left or the right. Compare barrel lengths with your boss; maybe if you measure up you'll get a promotion to Commode Cleaner II.

In the real world, virtually all public health doctors and ER physicians find people like you terrifying and wrong.

In that post he made a factual error, which I pointed out in a fairly relaxed and light-hearted manner @19. Which comment was perfectly on-topic, as it was about tomatoes, and was in direct response to another comment here.

Then came CB freaking out again, unleashing his inner fascist and telling me (among other things) to get out. What a ridiculous little person. Please don't be fooled.

Uh, oddly enough my garden grows fine here in MUCH hotter DC. My parsley is fine, and while yesterday's heat left my basil looking a smidge wilted, a nice watering perked it right back up. I even still have lettuce (in the shade and well-watered) that has not bolted.

Plus, my neighbor convinced his wife NOT to yank the peach tree that was split by the Derecho last summer, and I therefore should have more peaches than I know what to do with within the week. There's, like, a hundred peaches on the flourishing part of the tree that remained standing. :)

Please to be sharing - when do you plant your tomatoes? I clearly started way too late and while my starts are getting big fast, I probably won't have much good fruit before summer's over.

But OMG my strawberry patches, which were pretty neglected this year, have kept producing FAR longer than usual. I'm still picking berries from beds that normally would have stopped producing a month ago. And the radishes, lettuces and chards have done awesome, too.
