My first order of seeds arrived today and now I know Spring is right around the corner! [Tomato Growers Supply] I’m trying some new (to me) tomato varieties and an “old” favorite:

Sprite – Determinate, 60 days. Grape tomato on a small bush. The packet promises “no sacrifice in fruit quality, size, productivity, or flavor – just shorter plants for smaller gardens.” I want to believe!

Martino’s Roma – Determinate, 75 days. Pear shaped paste tomato “perfectly suuited to cooking, but delicious enough to eat fresh.” These plants are promised to be compact and “extremely productive.” Heirloom variety.

Juliet – Indeterminate, 80 days. I have grown Juliet for several years now and will
never stop. Super grape!

Micro-Tom – Determinate, 85 days. “World’s smallest tomato variety.” Irresistible! Grows 5-8 inches tall in a 4 inch pot and produces “flavorful miniature tomatoes about the
size of salad croutons.”

Last year I grew only Juliet and Yellow Pear tomatoes. Both of those make a large vine and my Mom seemed to be overwhelmed by just one Yellow Pear, so I wanted to try some smaller varieties this year.

No big surprises with the peppers. I am trying a new variety of sweet banana peppers.

Sweet Spot X3R Hybrid – 70 days. “This high-yielding banana type pepper produces an incredible harvest of mild, sweet peppers about 8 inches long and 2 inches wide.” Happy days!

Medusa – My favorite ornamental pepper. The little chilis it produces are not hot at all. Very sweet and edible.
