Kloppers for next year write down: Cherokee Purples and Green Zebra Tomatoes. OMGosh are they sweet. The cherokee purple I can eat like a peach. They are that good. I also LOVE the little yellow pear cherry tomatoes and the Amana Orange...sp? tomatoes...the latter are a double so very meaty tomato. The last few years I've got into growing different varieties of basil. It is so much fun.
Now I'm itching to get my hands in some dirt. It is rock solid right now though.
--Craig Lake (Lake by the Airport) has went out. I wonder if your spot is close or ready to go...? Heading over that way for coffee Sunday. Maybe I'll drive across the County Rd. and sneak a peek.
I have been growing herbs in my basement this winter (that sounds sketchy haha.. Cooking herb not the illegal herb) and that has been a fun learning experience. I have 2 kinds of basil, Rosemary, Greek oregano, sage, and spearmint. I have been practicing cutting and rooting on the basil and rosemary. I will be taking more cuttings from a sickly basil plant this weekend and tossing the roots I think. It got leggy last summer when I over harvested and then the branches got woody except for the new sprays growing off it. It is very slow growing too. It is amazing that a basil cutting put in a plug with a dab of rooting horomone will root like crazy!
