OH MY! I have that "Blue Mist" stuff everywhere! I thought it was just a pretty weed, so I just let it come again year after year....no idea ever what it was!!!!! And yes, the pollinators are all over it, it is really pretty. Does it self seed, or is it perennial, Windmere?

Ha ha, I think a weed is all in the eye of the beholder.  My Blue Mist might be an annual (it dies back the first frost, but I don't know if there is still an active root system below ground).  Does it reseed? Boy does it!  I generally don't mind where it ends up, but sometimes they find their way into spaces reserved for other plants.

Those are Sungold tomatoes.  They look yellower in the sunlight, but they are actually orange.

Some people swear by that stuff, but we've had dogs pooping and peeing all around the house, and get coyotes too ... and still deer still come right up to the door.

Marc, so far these products have worked for me... so long as I remember to reapply after a very heavy rain.  I changed it up a bit between these three to prevent the deer from becoming accustomed to a single product.  The only casualty this season were two kumatos on my daughter's vine (I forgot to do her box in addition to all of mine after a very bad downpour).

Marie, my variety of Blue Mist is in the Aster Family.  Although, I have to say, when I first noticed it, I thought it looked like a member of the mint family too!  I found some more detailed information at wildflower.org. 

Here's a link to the page:

SFG Garden - Fayetteville, GA  2015 - Page 3 Empty Floridade and Tiger Blush Tomatoes

Post  Windmere 8/6/2015, 3:23 pm

I just wanted to post some more tomato pics.  I took these shots today, just before we had a downpour:

Except for Black Krim, I have never grown a truly large tomato.  This Floridade plant has been resistant to fungus and has, to me, huge tomatoes.  We can't wait for these to ripen:

SFG Garden - Fayetteville, GA  2015 - Page 3 Aquari12

These are Tiger Blush tomatoes.  I "bad mouthed" them in a previous post (I said they were riddled with fungus).  Well, after a good fungus treatment, they took off.  They've remained relatively disease free, even though surrounding tomatoes are doing poorly.

I love that photo! My Sungolds have a week or 2 to go having been planted from seed later than my other maters. We're already munching the Black Cherries and Sweeties. But Sungolds are still my fave!

Gorgeous! I bought a sweet million cherry, but lo and behold, it was mislabelled and it is either Sungold or Sunsweet--delicious! Better than what I thought I bought, but they were out of the Sun-varieties. Thanks goodness for a little lapse in the quality control at the seedling nursery!

Our local paper had an article on local tomatoes. Sungold "the sweetest tomato ever." "Sungold plants certainly are prolific; one 7-foot vine can produce thousands of tomatoes."

True?

Yes, with really good soil and enough space and sunlight and growing time. The neighbor who lets me use some of his beds usually plants sungold and sweet millions cherry tomatoes, and he loses many hundreds(at least!) simply to rot on the ground because he can't bother getting to them fast enough -- and neither can I! They are not a modest plant -- they really produce! And this while we are picking vastly more than we let rot.

And like many cherries I've dealt with, they tend to produce earlier and in hotter weather. The smaller the tomato, often the earlier you get 'em.

I will say that many people find sungold has unexceptional flavor. The soil makes all the difference, and picking right at their peak takes them to another level.

Thanks, I would love to have one prolific tomato plant. I wonder if the yellow color can be camouflaged with some red tomatoes for canning tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce?

Awww, who cares about looks? Spaghetti, like pizza, is a peasant food. It doesn't have to look perfect or this way or that way unless you say it does. I say get people used to trying more and newer things rather trying to cram every food experience into a narrowly acceptable mold.

Picked right at their peak, they usually segue into -- yup -- a gold(sungold!) rather than a yellow, or even better into a gold that is shading into orange and just on the brink of losing its luster. How they cook down I don't know, but you shouldn't get a yellow sauce.

Sungolds added into a green tomato chutney base are fantastic, by the way. At the end of the season, when you still have hundreds of tiny tomatoes, scoop 'em all off and you'l have quite a volume, and simmer 'em down into a sauce!
