    my stupice are doing the best, volume wise, my early girls look the best, have fruit hanging. and lots of blossoms.
    the cukes sure like the new fertilizer I started feeding the Toms.

    My beans (yellow wax and Providers) are sprouting under the visqueen I stapled over the top of the raised bed. The beans really flopped last year, sure hope we can have a good year for the beans..

    lost a few peas to the cutworms.

    mudbuddy, Noticed your framework for the cuks I have a piece of concrete wire mesh hanging over my plants and it does not require any tying up of plants.

    Good idea,
    been thinking about using something instead of parachute cord & raspberry cane.

    It's against the back wall & the 2x2" framing is shelves for my garden plants trays.
    I plant the cut seeds in the soil boxes & by the time they get that tall , its
    usually time to plant the garden& the trays are gone.

    A piece of 5" sq fence a little above that, the the cuts would have a good platform
    to climb on + big enough to reach thru & train the plants ... pick cucs.

    Cuc leaves are monster size this year(bigger than a 5 gallon bucket lid):

    Finally, something besides the Stupice are starting to turn colors. Got a couple 4 July's just starting. I'm especially anxious to taste some of those good looking EG's. Overall it's been a little different this year. The 0-33's dislike temps in the GH to go above 85. I had to set one outside to keep it from looking all wilted. The 2 Sasha Altai in the GH did not do as well as the 3 plants outside. Next year I plan on trying a wider variety outside. I Didn't grow any 10 foot tall tomatoes like Mark does, but that fertilizer program he put me onto grew a few 7 footers.

    Default Tomatoes

    John, this is 0-33 outside. I am growing several varieties outside, many are doing well in containers or straight in the dirt.

    Neither of mine look quite that good. But, I'm really happy with what they are doing this year. I've already decided that the 0-33 was going to be outside in a tire next year.
