Wayne, I wanted to post a pic of these gorgeous tomatoes from your neck of the woods.
They're still green, they got a late start, but coming along nicely.
The reason I wanted to show a pic or two is that I might lose them all this year. I have been planting tomatoes there for over 20 years and it took a California Tomato to attract Squirrels Grin. I caught one walking away with a nice one in his mouth Roll Eyes.
I'm sure he'll be back.

Bricks are 8" x 2 1/2", just to give an idea on size

Thanks again Wayne for the seeds, I hope I get to taste a few.

Sal: A 22cal. pill will take care of that! Grin Wink. I lost an entire crop of Tomato's one year to the deer, I was fuming. so I put up an electric fence, that took care of them eating my tomato plants. My son and grandson hunts my property also. That's a win win for me, venison and critter control. Wink Cheesy

This is how I try to keep my critters under control. A 22 Diana pellet gun. We tried Gardens here in Phoenix, lost cause.

Before she got too old, Lucy would keep my squirrel population under control.  With a little pellet gun help of course.

Sal,

WOW!!!!  You’ve got it going back east!!!

You have made those tomato seeds take hold back east as well.   Good for you.

Question, I send you two packets of seeds:  Package A & Package B.

Which one did you plant & photograph???

I’ll send your post to my construction buddy, I know he will enjoy reading of your success,

As far as the squirrels, here in San Mateo, we call them... “Furry Tailed Rats” for all the right reasons.

Buddy Jim has an aging German shorthair as his hunting dog, and on its own, the dog killed 13 rats (the regular variety) one evening last summer.   I like the idea of a .22 with bird shot. Effective and NO ONE gets hurt.

Send more of your tomato harvest as they continue to produce!!!

We are in Bishop, CA (Google it) and will be fishing the So. Fk of Bishop Creek around the 8,000’ & 9,000’ elevations.

And tomorrow, Jennifer and I will drive to the White Mountains, home of the oldest growing specimen in the world.

Wayne, can't tell you which are A or B because I got mixed up and lost track.
One think I do know for sure, these are the best tomatoes I ever had.
I wanted to try one raw, with just some olive oil and a little salt to get the full flavor


very little seeds, just a few around the edge. These are really meaty and very  flavorful

Can't wait to try them chopped up and fried in some olive oil with a little garlic and toss some perciatelli al dente. Smiley
Thanks again Wayne.

Those look really good. Are they heirloom tomatoes, Sal?

Some of those can be so sweet, its like eating fruit. Nothing beats a good, fresh picked tomato!

Yes, I believe so Lou. Those were started from seeds and transplanted when only 2" in height. They say not to at that height, but I never had issues. Plants are now kept at 6' and yes the squirrels are still enjoying them Roll Eyes.

That must be a good sunny spot, and protected from wind. Usually High Breads are sustainable when they are protected from air born fungus which they are rather prone to. Good crop Sal.
