Default Tomatopalooza 8 date?

Wondering about that date as I am putting off a contract to be sure I do not miss Tomatopalooza (I have my priorities you know!) - TIA

Right now, it looks as if it's going to be 7/31, mainly because the shelter was
already taken for the 24th. This might work out better for Craig and some of
the other folks as their tomatoes come in a little later. Mine however, may be
peaked out by then.... we'll see....

You never know, Lee! We look to be in for an extended period of cool nights, which will slow things down. I can also keep some seedlings going if you want to do some stagger planting, which I am considering - my rear two garden rows will be free once the spring greens are done.

Right on! I'm a late starter so that'll be awesome! Now back to tearing apart densely planted seedlings! Thanks fellers!

I'll chime in as well... I am about 3 weeks behind last year's schedule, so as far as I'm concerned, the later the better. I'll be lucky to have much of anything by the end of July. Just my 2 cents.
