Watch it Grow

EarthMix® Summer Sizzle Days are here; huge savings on your premium favorites!

The seasonal temperatures, combined with excellent ground moisture, makes for conditions where warm weather plants seemingly grow in front of your eyes.  I have tomatoes well above the seven-foot mark.  They seem to have grown at least a foot last week.  Of course, I’m not so much paying attention to the height of the plants, as I am the harvest of bounty I am currently receiving.  A delicious bounty I must say. 


The Sun Sugar tomatoes are ripening daily.  Sun Sugar is a determinate yellow-orange salad tomato.  It is what the name indicates: sweet.  I am currently picking 30 or 40 of the large marble-sized delights daily, and there’s no end in sight!  I am also now seeing the first color of the Cherokee Purple tomatoes.  I probably have 20 or so fruits coming on now, as well as nearly that many Brandywine.  I have one other plant now beginning to produce.  That is Yellow Pear.  It is perhaps my favorite tomato of all.  Like the Sun Sugar, it is a non-acid salad tomato, but it has its own unique sweetness.  The heat may seem oppressive, but the harvest makes it worth it.


Serious gardeners like you and me know one thing: plants need excellent soil to produce excellent results.  It doesn’t matter whether you are growing for food or for ornamental use. With everything growing at such a fever pitch, it got me to thinking of showing appreciation by having an EarthMix® Summer Sizzle Sale!  For one week only, the ‘Crown Jewels’ of the EarthMix® line will be offered to you, our BatesRewards member for at least 50% off!
