My tomato plants are enormous, they are huge and leggy and bright, healthy green and covered with green tomatoes and NOT ONE ripe tomato yet and I should have had some weeks ago.

The gardening guy in the paper says it's a bad year for tomatoes. I bet mine will get blight before I even have ONE tomato.

Durn. :rage:

But if you've got green ones, that's a good start, isn't it? Season isn't over yet. :)

But if all else fails, you can harvest them green, and either use them as green tomatoes, or leave them to ripen indoors, which they usually do.

We've got six tomato plants, and another one or two ripe on each of them each day at the moment.

We're having tomato soup twice a week at the moment. :blackeye: :D

I've discovered that cherry tomatoes do well in containers, romas don't do as well, and better boys barely produced any. But it was fun to try. :D

But now that we have our own house, we'll start a garden in the ground. :banana: I also have to learn a bit about the flowers and shrubs that I have here and there around the yard. I really don't have much gardening experience, so I have a lot to learn. The former owners of this house told us that they let their grandkids plant lots of bulbs in one plot near the fence, so it will be fun to see what comes up in the spring. I also have a couple rose bushes, some sunflowers and some type of palm fern. A lot of weeding to do, since the house has been empty for so long before we were able to move in.
