    Default Some 2010 garden pics

    Even with the rain most plants did well.
    GH plants got moldy (severe pruning helped) but got lots of toms & cucs

    Man, those tomatoes are huge! Very nice garden you've got there. You're giving me a goal to aspire to.

    How did you grow the tomatoes in Alaska? Raised beds?

    i want one of your tomato sandwiches! i grew tomatoes here in beds next to the front of the house, southfacing ofcourse, they were the smaller variety but i had lots of them outa 6 plants. smaller then fist size tomatos, so you can grow them outside a greenhouse in alaska forsure.

    What kind of tomatoes are you growing? Those are nice! Our greenhouse did horrible last year. Our raised beds did good though. Are you in the southcentral area or further north in the interior?

    These were Brandywine, (cowlick).
    Mat-Su valley.
    I have the best luck & taste with Early Girl tomatoes. But always trying new ones.
    These got big & tasted OK, but IMO, the early girls tasted better.
    I grew some in raised beds but didn't get much production or flavor.
    I think it's temperature, especially at night, toms like 60+ to get good flavor.
