Hi, Linda. This year, I tried cherry varieties which traditionally do well here (e.g., Sungold), and cold-weather-resistant plants, e.g., Siletz and Russian Gold. However, due to the cold and damp this spring and early summer, I have yet to even have one cherry tomato ripen yet.

Is this an aberration or should I keep with my strategy of smaller varieties and cold-weather strains?

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,
You are doing everything right for this climate--we are just having about the worst gardening summer in 20 or 30 years in these parts. Let's all hope for a better season next year. I know quite a few gardeners are now thinking about how nice it would be to have a greenhouse for future tomatoes, peppers and other crops.
Cheers!
