High Anxiety Tomatoes

bio_leslied

Hi All, Leslie in Las Vegas here.

Bill has waited all winter and the moment has almost arrived.  For Bill, anticipation is not part of the enjoyment of eating tomatoes.  He suffers greatly while the plants grow a little everyday.  Just like the kids asking, “Are we almost there?” Bill asks, “When do you think they will be ready to pick?”

I think we can start to eat them the second week in July. I transplanted these Hawaiian Tropic tomatoes on May 7th this year, a little later than usual. But no worries - this is a very heat tolerant variety that stands up to our sizzling desert

    LOL, I’ve also noted that since I started blogging, and can read about people growing tomatoes in much warmer climates, I’m sort of that annoying “parent” who compares my “offspring” to others. ! :) (My winter-sown tomatoes are still quite small; not because they’re winter-sown but because we’ve had a cool and overcast spring here in SE Michigan.)

    I had a frost June 10 and I ran the wood stove at night into the beginning of July. Nothing but cold and rain and tiny half drowned tomato plants.
