WOW! I have never grown such big fruits from this variety before! If you just joined this web site, let me fill you in. I have been saving seeds from “Cabin” tomatoes and regrowing them for the last few years. The plants seem really disease resistant, and I love the taste! I have saved one […]
I don’t know why tomatoes sometimes grow fingers, noses, whatever-you-want-to-call-these, but they are fun!
One of my two Cabin tomato plants is giving up the fight for water! The basil is badly gone to seed as well. It’s hard to convince the plants to play nice when they are seeing extreme weather and all they really want is some water. However, on the other other end of the patio, […]
I have been seeing some Cabin tomatoes that are much larger than the last 3 years. I guess when they get full sun they produce at a better size! I saved seeds from these two tomatoes. They are fermenting in this jar on my counter. Soon I’ll clean them and dry them. Only 4 of […]
My first 6 pounds of ripe tomatoes. They’re an ugly bunch, due to the weather, but they’ll taste fine when I make them into salsa! I didn’t even see the squash bug in person. I only noticed him in iPhoto. This is a Cabin plant. I’ll be saving a whole bunch of seeds soon.

Look how big my green tomatoes are getting! These are still from the first flush on the Giant Syrian plant. Too bad only 1 out of 25 flowers are turning into green tomatoes now. They don’t like to set fruit when the weather is this hot. Soon these will be ripe and I’ll be able […]
Most of the tomatoes have reached 5 feet high already and all are loaded with green fruit that (thankfully) just keeps getting bigger. These are the best plants I have ever grown, so I must have found the optimal location in my yard for them this year. The Cabin tomato plants (on each end) have […]
This was from a Rutgers tomato plant that I grew with seeds from “Mike the Gardener”. I joined his seeds of the month club last Thanksgiving at such a reduced price that I could not refuse the 3 year membership. I will receive an envelope in the mail every month (don’t you just LOVE when […]
