So, I've noticed that Morsel_B F2 is growing very fast. It looks as big and mature as the tomatoes I seeded weeks before it, which is to say, quite a bit larger than all its fellows seeded at the same time. I'm really curious about the father of the cross. Hamson is the next largest of its aforementioned fellows.

Possible fathers of Morsel_A F1 are these (based on what I grew in 2018, when I saved the seed that grew Morsel_A from Napoli):
- a Galapagos Island cross F1
- Sweet Orange Cherry
- Husky Cherry Red F5
- Early Pick F1
- Volunteer (this one must have been a cross; very prolific, strong, vigorous and large plant with yellow/gold fruit)

Early Pick F1 was the closest of those to Napoli, but the fruits were probably too large.

I'm not sure I grew any other cherries that year. Morsel_A was an ovate red large cherry, and was somewhat sweet.

One of the watermelons sprouted. There are only two kinds, and I didn't label them, but when it produces fruit, I should be able to tell by the look of the rind, and whether or not it tastes like Jolly Ranchers.

A second tomato (v22_A10) produced a bloom. It's a volunteer and is probably Galapagos Island. I believe it's in the same spot that v21_A24 (it's likely parent) was.

The first tomato to bloom has a whole cluster of flowers.

No fruit has set, yet.

A second watermelon sprouted, and v22_A9 bloomed since the last time I posted (which was about an hour and a half ago).

I gave about two thirds of the snow peas Miracle Gro in the ground. If the things I gave Miracle Gro respond well, I'll probably give some to the rest of the tomatoes and peppers (among other things).

. . .
The only plants that obviously liked the Miracle Gro in the ground were the potatoes and the Nina_B tomato. (Edit: looking at them later today, I notice some possible benefit to the other tomatoes; I hadn't been outside today when I started this post.) The snow peas evidently disliked it, because the ones I fertilized turned chlorotic on top, and the ones I didn't fertilize further down the row are just fine. So, I think I'll stick with foliar sprays with Miracle Gro, for the most part (and probably not on peas). I'll probably still do some experimentation in the ground.

As to why peas would turn chlorotic on top after receiving Miracle Gro, I don't know. Any ideas?

The yellow parts seem to be dying off, with the rest of the plants being fine.

My first tomato set fruit, yesterday. It was MKX_B F2. The fruit shape looks oval, I think (it's still small; so, I could be wrong about the shape). I'm guessing it'll be like an oval, but a bit fatter in the middle than a true oval.

Well, the first fruit (of MKX_B) is actually round--not plum-shaped. It's also PL. So, its fruit-shape and leaf-type should be stable already. It's growing vigorously.

EDIT (23 Jun 2022): Actually, they really are plum/ovate-shaped.

I noticed different kinds of calyces on MKX_B1 than MKX_B, MKX_B0, and the Snacker_ tomatoes. It has a long-ish kind that point toward the blossom end (the sort I mean isn't a common calyx type for a cherry tomato). That should give clues as to MKX_A's father, but I don't recall which red, round, RL tomatoes were like that in 2016, if any of them.

I planted my carrots 69 days ago. They're 60-day carrots, but they took a while to sprout. I don't see any bulbing, yet.

I pulled up the Cherokee Golden tomato. It was still only an inch tall or so, and it was wilting heavily, despite moist soil.

Last I checked (on Wednesday), there were six containers of watermelon that had sprouted. Some containers had multiples.

I changed my mind about the Miracle Gro (24-8-16) in the ground, with regard to tomatoes, and decided to experiment some more. It seems to be helping more than I first thought (but I still think foliar sprays with a pump sprayer work much faster and are probably about or at least a hundred times as efficient).

I pulled up a few tomatoes (such as u22_A and the tomato that I wasn't sure if it was a volunteer or a member of MKX_, as well as the volunteer that is probably Galapagos Island right by my western neighbor's fence--someone sprayed weed killer on it for some reason).

Yesterday, I gave about 25 tomatoes Miracle Gro in the ground, including all the Snacker_ tomatoes, Cherokee Yellow Perfection Peach, the three westmost Amana Orange tomatoes, all the MKX_ tomatoes except for the first one to set fruit, Frog Princess, all the Broy_ tomatoes, all the Roma VF tomatoes, Italian Heirloom, Nina_B, Nina_B0, and the westmost remaining volunteer that is probably Galapagos Island.

Today, I thinned the wonderberries and ground cherries.

I have a tricot watermelon; the three cotyledons look like a rabbit. There are twelve containers of watermelons that have sprouted or begun to sprout, so far. If anymore sprout, then I'll know that they're not all the same kind, for sure.

The biggest tomato plants seem to be two of the Broy_ tomatoes. Their leaves are huge.

MKX_B set at least two more fruit. The fruits have flattened blossom ends.

Morsel_B had set some fruits (I think three), by Tuesday. V22_A10 set fruit by Wednesday.

So, at least the following tomatoes have set fruit:
- MKX_B (at least 8, and I guess I was right the first time; they are plum/ovate-shaped)
- Morsel_B (probably at least 3)
- v22_A8 (not sure how many)
- v22_A9 (ditto)
- v22_A10 (ditto)

A thirteenth watermelon sprouted maybe two to four days ago. So, we have at least two kinds. I hope they can mature in time, being transplanted so late. They look like they need fertilizer, too.

It's supposed to be 105 on Monday, but the interesting news is that might be the hottest day of the season. So, the whole season might be cool(er). I wonder how that will affect fruit production, with so many days in the 80s.

We had some blossom drop on Wednesday. It's a shame I haven't sprayed with calcium nitrate, yet (it seems to help there). I should do that on Friday. I'll probably spray with Epsom salt soon, too (not the same day); I've never sprayed that before; I've always put it in the ground (but as I added it to the soil everywhere last year, I want to make sure I don't overdo it by putting it in the ground again, this year, just in case).

This entry is for yesterday:

A fourteenth watermelon sprouted.

Fruit set:
- Snacker_C0 set at least two fruit. It's also the largest Snacker_ plant, this year. The fruits look more oblong/ovate than I was expecting, so far; maybe round isn't fully recessive.
- Snacker_C set a fruit, too, which I noticed later.
- MKX_B set a fruit on another flower stalk; there are 10 fruits that have set on the plant, so far.

I fertilized some tomatoes in the ground with 24-8-16 All-purpose Miracle Gro, in the morning, including the following (all the watermelons, and the ground cherry, too):
- Pearler_B through B2
- Carbon (B0)
- Snacker_C3 through C6
- Nina_B and B0
- Gold Medal (A)
- Amana Orange (B1A9)
