Main tomato beds. It did not find any set fruits yet. hmm
Had many blooming a week ago but our temperatures were above 90, I do not think they enjoyed it. Than it rained. Maybe next week we will have something set.

There are few potatoes in this container. They have huge tops, I hope bottoms are growing as well.

Finally fruits starting to set on few tomato plants.

I was looking at my thread from 2015 and on June 16 we had good size tomatoes on many plants and first tomato was picked on June 25 (not counting cherry). It will be much later this year.

Zucchini covered in DE, ants are all over them. I have the kind of ants that are milking aphids and spreading them everywhere: my tart cherry, cucumbers, dill, zucchini, ...
Next is broccoli... first time growing.

Protecting cucumbers, peppers and sweet peas from squirrels digging and cats pooping... at least trying to. Had to replant cucumbers twice. Gave up on peas.

Something interesting is happening with many varieties this year. They are probably trying to survive from creasy irregular weather. The number of flowers per cluster seems to be more than usual. See for your self: Cherokee Chocolate, McMurray # 10, Carbon, JD's Special C-Tex and others...
...they have as many flowers as cherry varieties.
Does anyone have the same situation?

I think you are doing things better than ever before, Ella.

Thank you, Marsha.
It does not look to me that way. Last year I picked my first ripe tomatoes on June 25th: Biyskaya Roza and Grandfather Ashlock (not counting cherries). I am not even close to picking one. Okra is late as well, thanks to neighbors cats and squirrels. Had to replant it.
Everything is late.
I sprayed few times with dishwashing soap and DE mixture for aphids and other bugs. Will see.
Marsha your mango tree is just gorgeous. Do you grow other types of trees as well?

Yes, Starfruit. It loads up very well too. They both seem to like that Citrus, Lime Avocado fertilizer in the orange bag at HD. I just cast it out to the drip line every January. Thank you for the kind words. Biskaya Roza was really early for me too. I like that tomato lots.

I am still in Union County but noticed myself just this morning the parculiar growth. I have a Rebel Yell plant with one truss that has @18 flower buds on it. I hope the image comes up. Haven't posted photos for some time

Well the image didn't come up. But also I am seeing the same for KBX, prudence purple, and Ananas Noire. I have flower buds coming out of flower buds. Never remember seeing such a thing!

Ella, I think I've noticed the same thing! I've thought a few plants almost
look like they have as many blooms as a cherry. the worst problem I'm having
is a record number of cat-faced fruits. The bottoms almost look like they have
split into quadrants and you can see inside the locules and tiny bumps where the seeds would be. I pulled off a record number of these kind of fruits this year-I hate cutting around disfigurations like these. We're had so many alternating
hot and cold days, very cold nights after planting. I have very few "pretty" tomatoes so far. They're also very late even though the plants are healthy.

Still, there's lots of blooms left so I think we'll both have plenty-we'll just have to
be patient! Good luck! Darlene
