What kind of tomato is that Jeekinz? It looks like a brandywine--they are gigantic and come on huge vines!

This is tomato porn! I'm so jealous!! I've got 'maters in my yard, but something is getting to them before I do, the little buggers. I live on the coastside and really have no business even trying to grow them, but every year, I buy the ones that promise to grow in cool weather, blah, blah, blah. I hope I can get even one this year. This year's plants are container cherry tomatoes, kind of like Sweet 100s. At least the critters are enjoying them and they eat them very green, so I doubt any will survive for us humans to enjoy.

It's a Beefsteak.

Thanks for the compliments, although Mother Nature is the one responsible.

Those Sweet 100's are great, I have a plant or two. My Romas, AGAIN, are not doing well. I think this is the last year I plant those.

Some varieties of my grape/cherry tomatoes are getting thick skins. Don't know what that's all about.

Jeekins, sorry I tried to hone in on your spotlight with my pepper. I really DO like your tomato, counter and your dog (love spaniels).

Don't be silly.

You could call it your emoticon pepper.
