Eric, did you start them in early, early spring in seed pots indoors and under fluorescent lights? I ended up pulling them up and buying replacements from HD and OSH, and they got the same disease: curly leaf, transmitted by the leaf hopper. Even the ones that had flowers never developed into fruit.

beefsteak is descriptive of various tomatoes, typicallythey are big and juicy table fruit as opposed to sauce/paste type tomatoes.

We have done something similar, be it forgetting to label, mixing up labels, losing labels, planting in the wrong square . . .

Post  Marc Iverson 9/15/2014, 2:13 am

I did that big-time this year. Half my crops are a mystery to me if not immediately recognizable to a first-time grower.

I pulled up a beefsteak tomato that had gotten hit by bugs and disease pretty hard, but had previously been my best one. Kind of a shame it never lived up to its potential. Also pulled up a banana pepper that gave me a wonderful initial bloom of very nice peppers, but then put out no more whatsoever, and spent a lot of time looking droopy and sad. That, too, was my best of its kind, and wound up the worst of four.

In the place of one pepper plant I put a kale seedling, but it's surrounded by too many pepper and tomato plants to get much sun. It's barely hanging on and may just die, but my tomatoes and peppers are doing so well that I'll just have to accept that.

My broccoli raab are doing tremendously well, my mustards are struggling hard against the aphids and all the new leaves are curled around the edges now -- big change, and a bad one. The nutty temp changes caused half of my lettuces to bolt -- 48 degree nights feel like encroaching fall/winter, and then we get a week of 100 degree+ weather? Plants have no idea what to do. Pulled the lettuce out.

A couple of kale that were barely doing anything but surviving in our hot days are starting to love our cooler nights, I guess, and look like real plants now. I have high hopes for them.

I have a lot of kale seedlings and chard seedlings that are reluctant to throw out their second set of true leaves, or even their first. I'd like to transplant them, but would like them to at least look like hearty seedlings before I do it.

Eric it sure is extremely hot there!  I am thinking that it may still be too hot to plant fall crops where you are.  I think that if it were me, I would still try to keep my summer crops going for awhile and even try to shade them some from your extreme heat.  When I lived in California, I did not do a lot of years of vegetable gardening and didn't know anything about fall gardening so I may be wrong.  Someone else may have been advice.

When I have had lots of zucchini and was getting overwhelmed with the amount I had, I shredded some zucchini and measured out what I needed for a batch of zucchini bread and put it in a zip lock and wrote the measured amount and what I wanted to use it for.  But I have a good amount of freezer space so that was an option for me.

Tricia: that's basicly what I did with the zuchinni made several batches of bread..and so far the fall crops are not to bad I am banking the weather starts to dip down and rolling into true fall weather near the time these plants start to really take off and are more then just a couple inches. atm my peas..beets..leeks...spinach..bok choi and cabbage are doing fine keeping them watered helps. its been nicely over cast today and yesterday and the temps are back down into the 80s so hoping that heat wave we had doesn't adversaly effect them to badly
