Im terrified to start my tomatoes yet. We had an unexpected snow last week, after weeks of nice weather. I hope your little guy grows to be one suculent tomatoe! Happy GTS!

I have an Early Girl almost ready to eat. Can't wait. I only plant one tomatoe plant each year, and savor every last one of them. The tomato plants won't set the blooms when it goes over 90, and we are there now, so what's on the bush will be it.
Happy GTS,

Might just see you there...

Congrats Mark,

My 4th of July's are doing great also. I had to trim off the flowers because i want to forced them to grow a little more until they go into the ground. I am planning on two more weeks since I expect tomatoes by June 30. How i have manage to grow 22 Fourth of Julys, and 4 of each 7 other tom veriaties, plus pepper plants in a single 2x4 light fixture is beyond me. All i know timing is right, and the aluminum foil helped a lot reflecting all light posible back to the plants. Next year i definetely need another light fixture. Keep us up to date & thanks for the post very interesting.

Thanks for your kind words! So glad to hear you'll be able to come to the festival! We hope you'll enjoy your time at Baker Creek and Bakersville! Have a safe trip!!

You have flowers on your tomatoes already. Mine are about 4 inches tall and way behind because I was a wee bit lazy in planting them.

I do have 2 Cherokee purple tomatoes that I was given that are planted in the garden.

Your tomatoes look awesome and soon you will have tasty red fruits.
