Journal June 27, 2013
The tropic plants are outperforming the hybrid trust tomatoes as usual. That being the case, I will no longer bother spending a dollar a seed for the greenhouse hybrids, but stick with just the tropics based on their superior performance with my growing conditions.
The Rutgers plant that I am trying has quite a few tomatoes that are a deep green with dark green shoulders. They look fine, but they are a long way from beginning to ripen, and in no way compare with the tropic tomatoes.
Both varieties of cucumber are almost to the peak of the greenhouse, and I still have not picked a single cucumber. The plants have several small cucumbers that I expect will take another few weeks to mature.
The telegraph cucumbers are looking very good though, much better than I recall the plants looking when I last planted them three years ago. I appears that we will be getting some very nice slicing cucumbers from those two plants.
