A few Big Beef, first cluster pic's. I REALLY need to pick maters! But, after 40 years growing maters, and making millions of dollars doing it , I think I'll just watch them.

Wow! All of these photos are so impressive. My only recent photo-worthy tomato is attached. It's a funky-looking Siberian that ripened three weeks late! (Sorry I don't know how to rotate the picture...)

I've been using Irfanview for many years. It's easy when you know the program.

DANG! I am so jelly of some of the good looking plants I have seen! But, I will post my meager crop I took pictures of this morning.

two Pink Berkeley Tie Dye plants - hope they hold on until September

a better bush and a serrano pepper sharing an 18 gallon Sterilite container

ah my first gateway tomatoes - a creole, that has been moderately productive with tasty fruit, and a Patio that has not been very productive, but the tomatoes have tasted good

two Pink Brandywine in 5 gallon buckets - plants look pretty healthy, now just hold on until September and cooler weather

here is a Pink Brandywine I planted in a reusable shopping bag - looks pretty good so far

here is a trio of Mortgage Lifters in 5 gallon buckets - I chose not to prune these, and they are growing like crazy - 4 main growing stems with tons of buds/blossoms on the crowns, and finally set a few fruit in the MS heat and humidity
