As I set out my plants back in mid April, I was hoping to have some tomatoes by the 4th of July holiday weekend.

Well, 450 is the official tally as of the 4th, not counting the Tommie Toes eaten straight off the bush. (In order to stay out of trouble I will publicly say the snatched / sneaked Tommie Toe count to be just a handful, 4 or 5 at most. ;))

The Brandywine count is only 29 at this point but they are beginning to crank up; Three plump ones are riding on top of the Romas below. (Yes, they do require the special security detail if you were wondering).

    I’m green with envy, amigo- the only tomatoes we have are the lil’ ones on the porch! I do LOVE this blog- and appreciate very much your sage advice!!! Still dealing with end rot and flood hangover- both me and the tomato plants!!! I have grand visions of next year already- ashame we won’t get a bonus to help- so I’m tempering my grand visions for lil’ grand visions. Thanks again!
