Indian Stripe is going to be the first of the tomatoes from my main garden to be ripe. Now whether or not I get to enjoy it will be the decision of that squirrel, who has already gnawed a chunk out of the tomato at left below.

This is not an early tomato, and it is not a small tomato. But it’s charging ahead of predictions, and I’m not going to complain about that! Indian Stripe is a cousin of the very popular heirloom Cherokee Purple. And it has outlasted and outperformed CP in my garden, as you can see without even knowing anything about my garden.

I’ve also got some amusing peppers—this is Hungarian Paprika, for drying and grinding into the fabulous spice. It does indeed seem to be sending its energy toward producing fruit rather than those pesky leaves and stems.
