Sandy loam soils are ideal, but raised beds or raised rows are recommended for heavier soils to promote soil drainage. Full sun is required for optimal growth. DIRECT SEEDING:In April or early May, or as soon as the soil can be prepared in early spring, sow in a 2" wide band, about 2 seeds/in., 1/4- 1/2" deep, rows 12-18" apart. Thin to 1 1/2-2" apart for highest yields in fertile soil. Thin to 3-4" apart for larger onions and 4" apart for the "sweet mild" type. TRANSPLANTING:For varieties of the "sweet mild" class, and for the storage type in extremely short-season areas, sow seeds indoors in flats in late February to mid-March. Broadcast 1/2" apart and cover 1/4". Tops may be clipped to 5" tall. Transplant to the garden 4" apart, or sow 5 seeds in each cell of 1-1 1/2" diameter plug trays, thinning to 3 per cell. Transplant each cell 6" apart. CULTIVATION:Keep onions well weeded with shallow cultivation. WATER:Onions are shallow rooted and grow best with at least an inch per week of rain or irrigation. DISEASES:Set-grown onions are more prone to disease than seed-grown onions. If you grow from both sets and seeds, plant in different locations to help avoid any disease spreading to the seed-grown crop. HARVEST:When onions have begun to develop skins and tops are falling over, pull and sun-cure at least a week before removing tops. STORAGE:When dry, clip off tops and store in onion bags or shallow boxes at near freezing and 65-70% humidity. DAY LENGTH:Onion varieties differ in the length of day required to make a bulb. Those requiring fewer daylight hours are grown in the South where the daylight period during summer is shorter than in the North. Most of our varieties are of the "medium" or "long-day" type, and if they are grown in the South, the days there are too short to initiate good bulb development. Refer to "Adaptation" in each variety description for details. DAYS TO MATURITY:From direct seeding; subtract 10-15 days if transplants are used. AVG. DIRECT SEEDING RATE:325'/oz., 1M/50', 5M/250', 25M/1,250', 580M/acre @ 20 seeds/ft., in rows 18" apart. TRANSPLANTS:Avg. 4,900 plants/oz., 78,750/lb. SIZED SEEDS:Standard on all varieties.

Mr Stripey Tomato Plant

“Mr. Stripey” tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum “Mr. Stripey”) are an heirloom variety of beefsteak tomato, which grows as an annual in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3 through 11. Without pruning, it reaches up to 10 feet tall with fruit maturing 55 to 85 days after planting. The fruit grows between 1/2 to 2 pounds. The ideal temperature for growing these red and yellow striped tomatoes is between 50 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit in full sun location 1 Locate "Mr. Stripey" tomato plants in full sun areas with at least six to eight hours of direct sunlight per day. Because of the large size of these plants, ideal spacing for this tomato variety is 36 to 48 inches apart. Air circulation around the branches of the plant dries the leaves quickly after rainfall, which keeps the plant healthy. 2 Bend a section of 6-foot-tall fencing into a cylinder 22 inches wide. Use heavy-duty wire fencing with a 4- to 6-inch-mesh. Cut the fencing with wire cutters, and fasten together with plastic twist ties. Place the cage over the tomato plant, and thread the branches through the wire mesh as the plant grows larger. 3 Spread 1 to 2 inches of organic mulch around the base of the tomato plants. Use straw, dried grass clippings or shredded leaves to prevent the quick evaporation of the soil moisture. Mulching also slows the growth of weeds around the tomato plants. Pull any weeds that survive the mulch by hand. Cultivating near the tomato plants can accidentally damage the stems and roots. 4 Water the soil around the tomato plants whenever no rainfall occurs for the week. Keep the soil moist. Letting the soil dry out and then flooding it with water causes fruit production problems in tomato plants. Keep the leaves dry and water in the morning to prevent most plant diseases from infecting the tomato plants. 5 Cut away suckers from the main branches of the plants with pruning shears, but keep most of the shading leaves intact to prevent sunscald of the fruit. Pinch off some of the flowers from large cluster of blossoms to allow the remaining flowers to set and grow large fruit. 6 Sprinkle 1/2 cup of 5-10-5 or tomato fertilizer around each of the tomato plants. Scratch the granules into the top inch of soil and water well. Feed the tomato plants when the first of the fruit is about 1 inch across and then again when harvest begins. Good luck with your Mr. Stripey Tomato Plants.

Growing German Johnson Tomatoes!

The German Johnson tomato is an heirloom variety from West Virginia that turns deep red-pink as it ripens on the vine. This open-pollinated tomato takes 78 to 80 days from the time it is transplanted out in the garden to produce its tasty one-pound beefsteak type tomatoes. The large fruits have a firm texture and few seeds, ideal for slicing fresh or canning. Start German Johnson tomatoes from seed indoors and transplant out in spring, or get right to the growing with starts purchased from your local garden center. 1 Fill 2-inch pots or cell-packs with damp soilless seed-starting mix. Place one German Johnson tomato seed in each cell or pot on the mix. Gently press seeds into the soil so that each seed is just barely covered. Start seeds anytime between mid January and mid April; the seedlings will be ready to transplant six weeks after planting the seeds. 2 Place the seed flat or pots in a bright sunny window and maintain 70 degrees Fahrenheit, using heating mat designed for seed starting, if needed, to help regulate soil temperature. Keep the soil damp with regular watering. Look for seedlings to emerge one week after planting. 3 Spread a 2-inch layer of seasoned manure on the planting bed. Dig the manure into the top 6 inches of soil, using a tiller in large gardens. Prepare the garden bed in spring two weeks before planting. 4 Transplant the seedlings into the prepared garden bed when they are with two sets of true leaves. And about six inches tall if they are taller then you can plant them deeper and they will form roots along the stems. Then after you plant them you should water them thoughly.

The problem is figuring out when one of these tomatoes is ripe--because they really do stay quite green, until they are over-ripe. At that point they develop a sort of orangey-rosiness on their bottoms ("blossom" end!) One clue--they soften when they are ready to pick. Also: in my garden, the vines set fruit later than the other kinds of tomatoes I was growing, but then they did pump out lots of yummy tomatoes! Be patient! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Article from Totally Tomatoes

The New Tomato Variety Iron Lady that is "triple resistant" to 3 Major Fungal Diseases.

Ready to plant: ‘Iron Lady’ tomato punches out blights ByStacey Shackford tomatoes High Mowing Organic Seeds The new Iron Lady tomato provides resistance to three fungal diseases; it is now available for planting. If the name fits, grow it: "Iron Lady" is the first tomato to resist three major fungal diseases - early blight, late blight and Septoria leaf spot - plaguing New York's growers for years. For farmers, this new tomato dramatically reduces the need for expensive fungicide. Iron Lady is available to both producers and home gardeners for the upcoming growing season. Favoring the Northeast's moist, cool conditions, one or more of these diseases occurs yearly, prompting Martha Mutschler-Chu, Cornell professor of plant breeding and genetics, to create tomatoes that resist late blight and early blight. However, since those plants could still be defoliated by Septoria leaf spot, Mutscher-Chu worked with research associate Stella Zitter and plant pathologist Tom Zitter to create Septoria resistance. Experimental hybrids using these "triple blight resistant" tomatoes were successfully grown in trials in North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia and New York, in a project supported by the Northeast Regional Integrated Pest Management Center. "We have demonstrated that we have tomato hybrids with good medium fruit that will stand up to these diseases," Mutschler-Chu said. "In order to reduce the need for fungicides, you need to genetically control all three diseases." Iron Lady, the cross of a "triple resistant" Cornell line and a late blight/early blight line from North Carolina State University, is the first of these hybrids to become commercially available, via High Mowing Organic Seeds. In addition to the strongest possible resistance to late blight -- provided by the combination of two genes, Ph2 and Ph3 -- tolerance to early blight and resistance to Septoria leaf spot, the plant also has resistances to verticillium and fusarium wilts, common to most modern tomato varieties. Early blight tolerance is not as strong as resistance, so the need for fungicides may not be completely eliminated. But Mutschler-Chu teamed up with professor Tom Zitter to identify a complementary fungicide strategy with the lowest possible environmental impact. This led to a potential reduction of sprays from weekly application to once or twice a season. That information is available to growers via Cornell's Vegetable MD website. "Tolerance alone is not enough, spray alone is not enough, but together there is good synergy," Mutschler-Chu said. Iron Lady is suitable for organic production, and was tested by organic farmers as part of a federal Organic Agriculture Research and Extension-funded project coordinated by Cornell breeder Michael Mazourek. He said disease-resistant tomatoes were identified as a top priority for organic growers, who currently use copper to control blight, a solution that can be just as bad for the environment as chemical fungicides. "This represents a really valuable tool for growers," Mazourek said. "And the tomatoes are head and shoulders above those you would find shipped to the grocery store." Mutschler-Chu said she wanted to make Iron Lady available to growers quickly because of the real and immediate need. "We have even better lines coming along," she said. "We are testing second-generation hybrids now." While breeding the new lines, Mutschler-Chu and her team created molecular markers that can be used to detect the presence of Ph2 and Ph3 in plants. "Use of markers cuts in half the number of generations it takes to breed," she said. "Development of a similar marker for the Septoria resistance gene is nearing completion." Mutschler-Chu is sharing her discoveries with scientists and seed companies, so that the resistance traits can be incorporated into other varieties. This project was supported in part by a New York Specialty Crop grant. Stacey Shackford is staff writer for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
