Hello again from Eight Gate Farm. This week there were a number of first harvests of the season, and I'll start with three of the tardiest tomatoes.
Brandy Boy is a hybrid with parentage from the classic beefsteak Brandywine that we love so much.

I love San Marzano tomatoes for making sauces, and usually they're productive, but this year the one plant is struggling, and I doubt I'll get too many.
|San Marzano (OP)
|Plum Regal hybrid paste tomatoes
|Florida High Bush (OP) plus one Ping Tung Long
|Ancho Gigantia hybrid poblanos
|Honey Select synergistic sweet corn
|Halona hybrid muskmelon
|Ambition (hyb) shallots
That's a lot of firsts, if I do say so myself. Now for the general harvests this week, starting with Tuesday.
