Q and A: Preserving juice, growing tomatoes, and preserving by confiting — 1 Comment

  1. I think Lorraine in NY needs to know that determinate varieties tend to produce their main crop at the same time while indeterminate varieties continuing growing,vining and setting fruit until frost kills them. Most seed catalogs give this information. I’ve been growing tomatoes for 45 years and like to have 4-5 different varieties as it seems some years are better for one variety. Some do better in heat/humidity, they all need enough heat and sun and blight resistance could be a factor. It seems interesting how one year nobody can seem to grow a good crop of tomatoes. Last year all my gardener friends had few tomatoes but their peppers wend wild. That’s waht makes gardening fun!
