With heavy rain in the forecast, I managed to plant my peppers and tomatoes early (5:30!) this morning. I planted 3 each of Speckled Roman and Cherokee Purple; 3 Martha Washington, after the mysterious loss of one plant; 1 Pineapple, because they are delicious; and 2 Sungold Cherries, because I could. MIA are the Rose tomatoes I thought I started.
I also planted my peppers, 3 Baby Bells; 2 Early Jalapeno, 2 Tiburon Anchos; 2 San Luis Anchos; 3 Joe E. Parker Numex; and 3 Carmen. I need to put tomato cages over the peppers and I’d like to get floating row cover over them for the next couple of weeks, but it isn’t looking likely.
I think I’ll be extraordinarily lucky if Late Blight doesn’t get the tomatoes after the mild winter. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
