    Default How are your tomatoes? No equivocation now.

    Mine are a foot high which is about eight inches in two weeks of cool nights. They’re about to bust out.

    Mine seem to be doing well, in 18” pots. 4 different varieties, including one heritage variety... we will see how they compare.

    I only have the one tomato... and she's fine. Perfectly ripe, delicious, and delightful...

    The peppers aren’t ready. Just biding their time as the weeds sprout around them.

    Speaking of new things. Anyone grow cardoons? It’ll be a first for me.

    Mostly Ok but one of the pots I put outside to harden the plant after a life in the greenhouse was savaged by a slug.I'm trying to make the productive season a bit longer by leaving some in the greenhouse for early ripening and some outside to produce a bit later.Two varieties,Gardeners delight and Rainbow.

    I left the small labeled pots thinking I might put in stakes with names. Then a storm came through. Sooo it’ll be a bunch of bunches of tomatoes.

    I have cherry tomatoes growing in hanging pots and an heirloom variety caged in large containers.
    Dropped down to 32F two nights ago...they seem to have weathered that.

    Also growing bell peppers and butternut squash.

    Old Smirnoff vodka ad, part of a series, IIRC, an orange talking to a bottle of vodka: "Who was that tomato I saw you with last night?"
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    Tomatoes? June and still producing starting in December.

    These are the 'volunteers' from tomatoes I tossed about the garden last season following the advice of Donn.

    mine are a solid 2ft right now and already have tangerine sized tomatoes on several plants. corn is about 2ft high. squash and zucchini look like they'll start flowering soon. okra is a little slow. green beans have put runners out about 3 ft so far. having to replant the peas tonight, that cold week a few weeks ago messed them up i think. all of the watermelon and cantaloupe are getting ready to run. peppers are slow this year, nothing over 1 ft right now. sweet potatoes looking good. carrots looking good. main disappointment has been the peas and one variety of green beans (2 varieties did great, just one crapped out with the peas)
