My tomatoes this year are very bland. They might as well be store bought.

I have "bloody Butcher" which aren't any more juicy or bloody or meaty than any other normal tomato. Yellow Pear, which are super small, and some hybrid cherry tomato that is supposed to be super prolific.

They all LOOK good, but I wasn't going for looks, I want those awesome yummy ones.

Next year should I just plant yummier, proven varieties, like beef steak, or is something probably not right with my soil?

I've side dressed with some rabbit manure and even put some watered down cow's blood in the mel's mix. The plants are very happy, but the Toms are just not that delicious.

Any input? Thanks!

Sometimes you just never know. I grew an heirloom variety, German Johnson, several years ago. The tomatoes it produced during the summertime were just as you've described yours -- no taste, lackluster -- but once the weather cooled down a little in September and October, those plants got INTO IT and produced a few awesome-tasting fruit. Unfortunately, the season was pretty much ended and we never got anything more ripened. I'm not saying you have the same issue, just that growing conditions can seriously affect taste.

Are the varieties you're growing recommended by your state extension service? That's what I'd check first. Not all varieties grow well in all climes.
