Default Boxcar Willie

Kinda lobe-y. Began preventative spraying for fungus today. Fungus will happen, but I put up a fight.

The fruits look flattish. Growing tomatoes is fascinating. (I probably need to get out more).

They all look great, I have quite a wait until I am at this point this year, but I can't wait. Hope your banner season continues.

Looks great Donna! Shows what a big change can be here in Texas, from one end to the other - I don't even have my potatoes out yet up here, we had a freeze this last week. But soon, oh yes, can't hardly wait!
