|Black Krim Tomatoes|
We also have a repeat of the black cherry tomato and some conventional tomatoes that we had success with over the years. In all I believe we have about twenty tomato plants in about 6 different varieties which include 2 -3 varieties of cherry tomato.

Melons, Cucumbers, Squash and Pumpkins
I'm not the biggest fan of squash so this year I won't be trying any but I do like pumpkin seeds and the ladies of the Bugbear clan seem to love watermelon. This year's crop of melons cucumbers squash and pumpkins include:
|Cream of Saskatchewan Watermelon|
|Rouge Vif d'Etampes Pumpkins|
I've also included some pickling cumbers since the whole McBugbear clan loves homemade dill pickles.
Cossack Pineapple Ground Cherry

I'm unsure but the ground cherry might properly belong under the tomato heading. Different sources cite it as either being a tomato or just related to the tomato but frankly it's edible and I judge the controversy to be academic.
This year we'll be planting between 4 and six plants and if successful we'll continue to plant them as the small cherry sized fruit are truly a unique and exquisite taste. I've seen a couple of pie recipes and I think that the ground cherries would make an interesting wine.
