Tomatoes



I have tomatoes! Two of the three plants have green fruits.

So far so good!

I have a love-hate relationship with the red fruit. I love tomato sauce, salsa and catchup but I don't like sliced tomatoes on burgers or sandwiches. I used to live on 72 acres of class 1 soil and I leased the ground to a farmer who grew tomatoes. Not beefsteak but canning tomatoes.

The smell of a tomato field after harvest and before they disc it under is nasty.

Happy growing!

Cowboy,
Sorry to hear about your bad tomatoe experience. I lived 25 years on the coast in SoCal where tomatoes wouldn't start growing until August and wouldn't set fruit at all. I am therefore excited to actually be able to grow them in our inland heat. These are not too impressive but getting started is the big obstacle. Wait until next year.
