1. How many of each have you planted

I think even with one of each you'll have tomatoes coming out your ears.

Such fun! Nice to see Cherokee Purple on your list (my rather shocking claim to fame, in a way!)

4. Nice! We have

similar tomato tastes. I have my own garden but also manage a small community garden and then also take care of a large private garden where the owner's are never there and I get to play and experiment

Growing Black Krim (always), Green Zebra (always), and Sungold (always). Also this year lots of Black Cherry, Druzba, Early Girl, Cherokee Purple, Sweet 100.

My own garden receives the most neglect and abuse...but between the three there are lots of interesting things to try including some ones not that common in socal: chayote, epazote, Lychee, Italian Dandelion, Horseradish, Olallieberry, Tromboncino squash, Mango, Opuntia/nopales, lemongrass, yerba buena, white sage, passionfruit, cardoons, sorrel, salad burnett...in addition to the normal stuff.

Great time of year when stuff is taking off and there aren't any catastrophes yet! This week we harvested first cucumbers (Diva), chilis (Jalapeno and Anaheims) and squash (Mexican, Zucchini, Cocozella di Napoli, crookneck). Still harvesting radishes, strawberries, blueberries, beets, olallieberries, fava beans, scallions, rhubarb, kale, chard. Shouldn't be time to harvest garlic yet, but it seems to be getting ready.
