Not be long... Crocodils (Up There) will be living there like they were, 100 millions of years ago.

Congrats on the harvest! I live in your area an have had terrible production the past 2 years. I only grow about 12 plants so production isnt that large anyway. just curious, how many plants do you have ?

Well, those came from the community garden site at UM Dearborn. Great soil and sun exposure. I also guesstimated the amount of Texas Tomato Food I applied, and suspect I was a bit heavy handed. There I have about 35 plants. The rest were from the cottage where I have 11 plants. The harvest was larger than usual because we did not get to the garden for 10 days.

Made 15 quarts of tomato juice and 13 pints of salsa. The rest went into a large batch of oven roasted tomato sauce.1

I feel weird saying this...I think that picture would make a heck of a knit pattern. Or quilt pattern, I don't know what you it would be called. But I think on a cold evening in the late fall or winter a blanket representing that would feel nice and warm. Yeah I am tired, half asleep, waiting for the canner to cool off, but I think it would almost SMELL like a warm summer.

Great pic and congrats on the haul.

I'm glad to read you like TC Jones so well. I've had seed for that for a while but haven't gotten around to growing it. I'll probably give it a try next season.

A few pictures with tomatoes harvested today and labelled. Those 5 Klaras weighed in for a total of 5 pounds. The Daetwylers weighed in at 6 pounds 1 ounce.

How great is that! Great harvest. Some years we are blessed. 2015 and 16 were good
ones for me. Too hot wet and humid here this season. But having a stellar pepper year. And herbs
and greens.

Beautiful! Tomato Texas Food? I think I'm using that next year. How often are you fertilizing?
I'm in suburb of Chicago, not too far from you, and lots of people are complaining about it taking a long time for tomatoes to ripen this year. I have 54 plants, and we have done pretty well so far, but I hope we have a nice hot September, or else we too will have lots of green tomatoes.
