These are actually the seconds and the ones that are still ripening. And they continue to pour in.

Thanks be to God!

    WOW, Charles they look great. I got such a late start this yr I don’t even have any green ones yet.

      I planted as early as I could, and suffered some weather damage as a consequence.

      I use Earthboxes, which deliver water and fertilizer almost perfectly–the only problem seems to be that the tomatoes grow so fast that they really need to be watered twice a day, which I can’t do, so some split.

      Another trick that seems to help is using 10% calcium chloride solution as a spray to prevent blossom rot.

  2. Mine are just starting to ripen.

      Gotta start as soon as one can after the last frost, and use well-rooted seedlings. Then you get most of the growth in before the bugs get going. Plus: Earthboxes. They do a lot to help rapid growth.
