Summer and Rain

It has rained more than shined around here and while my tomatoes may not exactly be suffering, it's the rare variety doing well.  I spent the last 10 years collecting varieties that would do well here.  I tried probably 100 Russian/Eastern European types thinking that if they can take Siberia, they can take it here.  Pretty much true.  But the best, I think, most reliable, is a variety from Kentucky called Grandfather Ashlock.  Every year I'm surprised.  Sort of like Groundhog's Day.  If we have a long summer and a late fall, all will be well.

Yes, I am working on Bittersweet 3.  "Scorching the world one mouth at a time."  You'll have to read the book to understand it.
