Early Cherry Tomato. This one produces about 55 days after transplanting outdoors so its one of the very early ones. Living in Maine, I like early producers and mid-season producers best. The late-producers often don't get all their growing done before I am hit with a frost in September.
The fruits of Early Cherry are small, 1 to 1 1/2 inches of orangey-red round fruits borne in sets of 5. Its a Determinate so bears all its fruit over a short period, but its robust and full-flavored so a winner in my book.
This one is Open-Pollinated so you could save its seed with the proper precautions and use them for next year's plants.
Red Robin is another early tomato, fruiting I about 55 days like Early Cherry. This little cherry tomato is only 8" to 12" tall but its covered with little tomatoes. I've grown this one before and I was pleased with the juicy, tasty fruits. It bears in clusters, the plant is very compact, and its a potato leaf compared to the usual shape. You can even grow this on a windowsill because it only needs an 8" pot.
Little Napoli, Roma-style, will produce next, in about 60-65 days. This one is not only a good slicer, but it makes great sauce. A nice one to roast and freeze to use during the winter. Juicy and meaty with a tangy flavor and its a heavy producer. It only grows 12" to 18" tall and 24" to 35" wide so its compact and works well in a container. A Hybrid so don't save this seed.
Sungold. There are very few home growers who have not heard of Sungold tomatoes. This one produces in about 65 days with 1 1/4" apricot-orange fruits borne on trusses of 10-15 fruits. As an Indeterminate (one that continues to produce til fall), this gives lots of fruity, tropical-flavored fruits right up to the first frosts. Being a Hybrid, you can't save seeds from this one.
Tasti Lee. This is my special choice since I could not find Compari. I've heard good things about this one. A Triple Crown Winner for Flavor, Nutrition and Shelf Life. Its claimed there are 50% more anti-oxidants in this little gem. With a slightly flattened shape, fruits are about 3 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long so a good size for slicing. I hope its as tasty as Compari which is the only tomato I will buy from the grocery store, it having the most garden-fresh flavor I'm used to eating, having grown my own for so long.
I also bought English Thyme. I love fresh thyme in my kitchen. I use it on chicken, potatoes and in soups and sauces. I was unable to find this sold in the local garden shops the last couple of years so I bought some from Territorial. This one grows upright about 12" with grey-green leaves and robust thyme flavor. If I can find a good safe place in the garden, I'd like to try to transplant some in the fall as a perennial. It's hardy to Zone 5.
Well, that about does it for now. I plan to buy some lettuce starts this month, the leafy kind so I can transplant them, let them grow a bit, cut them back to about an inch above ground to enjoy in my salads, and watch them regrow new shoots thru the season. I've done this before cutting them back 3 times before they bolted. I got lots of lettuce out of those 3 plants I grew in a pot near my kitchen door in the past. I plan to try it again.
Have a good day.
