After the 8 day monsoon they are now in.
My seedlings looked very good this season and were ready last week.
Here is a 'Husky Boy' from Parks Seed.

After a very quick half inch cloud burst this morning.

With such a mild Winter and early Spring I had intended on planting them last week, one week earlier than usual. Then the Monsoon came in.
Temps could reach the 80s next weekend, I want these guys to be settled in by then.
Does anyone else grow these Husky Boys? They are great.

That looks particularly healthy, Andy. Mine go in soon.

Ah that lush fuzziness! What kind are you growing this year, Andy? I have lots going, mostly heirlooms: Aunt Gertie's Gold, Garden Peach, Purple Calabash, Sweet Baby Girl Cherry, Sun Gold, Tommy Toe Cherry, Black Cherry, Roma Classica, Copia, Roman Candle, Orange Strawberry, Pineapple, Black Pear, Black Brandywine, Italian Giant Beefsteak, Goliath and German Giant. It is going to be a great season!

Charles, I only grow 3 kinds, 2 favorites and a trial. Every year.
I must correct my first post. The plant pictured is a "Beefy Boy" not Husky Boy.
I like this one because it is always well formed, large and has excellent flavor. A good hamburger slicer.
My other regular is Berpees "4th of July". It's a week earlier than Early Girl and tastes better. A bit smaller but produces non-stop until frost.
This years trial is "Better Boy", doing OK so far, but it's too soon to judge.

I have room for only 12 plants, 4 of each. I start half a pack of each, I give all the rest away. I have only 5 left.

I have grown Better Boy, a very tall sturdy plant with huge tasty fruit. Twelve plants is more than enough. I go a little overboard and enjoy growing uncommon varieties. I had 24 last year, but I took up canning (80 quarts in my basement) and my neighbors gladly receive them by the bag full. Very little goes to waste here. I will post some pictures of mine soon.
