Fantastic job on growing and posting. How far apart do you place the Earth Boxes? Thinking mine are too close.

They are about a foot apart, and 3 to 4 feet between the rows.

Wonderful!
I’ll also be growing Green Gables this year, so I hope mine look and taste as nice as yours.

I almost went with Uluru Ochre but at the last minute switched to Thorburns Terracotta. UC will go on next year’s list based on your feedback, especially if the plants stay healthy.
Looks like I will also be finding room for Mocha Splash next season. Truthfully, GGWT has good but not outstanding flavor (to me) and it hasn’t grown strongly so I’m looking for alternatives.

I like the taste of Cherokee Lime Stripes; have you tried it? Usually makes some monster tomatoes plus a fair number of regular sized. Stays fairly healthy.

I’m doing Captain Lucky, KBX, KARMA Pink & Peach among others. Any Carbon yet?

Delicious looking fruit! I can just taste them! Makes me impatient for seed starting time, still a couple months away here.

Beautiful and they look plenty big enough. Carbon has been one of my favorites from way back.

How does Mocha Splash compare with GGWT? They look a bit similar. Midnight Sun is beautiful. Got seeds for that Polaris and Taiga from Artisan seeds. After adding Tundra from your offer still need True Colors. Didn’t have room for these last year. Cherokee Green was my first GWR which converted me and my tomato buddy. You introduced me to Green Gables which is now an annual staple and I have finally saved a lot of seeds. Uluru Ochre has been the best producing Dwarf for me thus far and is such a gorgeous color.
Love these postings but you are not helping me cut down my list! 😋

Mocha Splash is very different, the flavor profile is very intense, both strong sweetness and strong acid. Its PL, and GGWT is RL, and its got branching trusses that make it so productive, you get lots of 3 and 4 oz little beefsteaks. It came to me as seeds of Chocolate Stripes , but it was PL, all seedlings were, and the fruit was not striped yet, flesh was a milk chocolate, or mocha color. So It was at least an F3, but I didn't know it wasn't stable until I grew it again. I have grown successive gens out until it is now stable. I believe it was Nan6b that came up with the name.

Marsha, thank you for posting all of these beautiful photos to get us through the depths of winter! That White Cherry Heart looks really intriguing, and Mocha Splash sounds amazing. They all look so beautiful though :)
