Default mid-west tomato fest report

Piegirl: You asked about how things are growing. Most every plant has green tomatoes. None are near ripe, not even the cherries. Now with the heatwave in full bloom, I am not sure when things will turn around. Most of my plants are well over 5 feet, some past 6' and very green and healthy. A couple are still small and spindly. Who knows when there will be a ripe tomato in the garden. Cucumbers have just started, beets are ready, vine crops are vining to kingdom come with a few pumpkins and gourds. Zucchini flowering, green beans are just starting and don't look too good. Peppers are just as behind as tomatoes.
there's two things money can't buy; true love and home grown tomatoes.
