This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Looks wonderful! I was wondering if you've ended up with a lot of split tomoatoes this year? I'm wondering if it could be from the sudden weather change we had, going from cool to blistering hot? My tomatoes look terrible this year! But still very tasty in sauces and stews :)

Yes, those are potatoes in the blue bowl. Russet mostly (a few Cobbler). By the time I am answering this comment, we have eaten them all. Baked with sour cream. Really delicious.

I have not had many split tomatoes this year. But my tomatoes are growing in a very sheltered, shady, and evenly watered location this summer. I rotated them out of my community plot. Mine are few and far between, but they look very pretty. As you say, more tomatoes the better for sauce! And they don't need to look good to taste good.
