Five Plants With New Tomatoes!

No new tomatoes to harvest, but five new plants have tomatoes! In the front yard, Mexico and BabyWine have tomatoes. In the back yard, Paul Robeson, Amazon Chocolate and Cuor De Bue have tomatoes.

The slightly cooler weather we've had lately (highs in the mid to lower 80's for the past couple of days and on into the end of the week, versus low to mid 90's for the week before) has helped two of the injured plants. Jaune Coeur de Pigeon and Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe both look better and are growing again. The trouble, though, is that these plants lost three to four weeks recovering and will probably never be the same. Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe doesn't show any damage, just lost time. The old growth on Jaune Coeur de Pigeon has leaf curl and is slightly gray, while the new growth has blooms and the color is green without the gray. There is another tomato on the plant.

The current weather patterns will be good for generating new tomato buds.

Red Currant continues to amaze with it's fast, bushy growth. I know there's tomatoes on the vines but you can't see it from outside the plant.

The Manchester Terrier knocked off the biggest tomato growing in the back yard, the one on Black From Tula. It was about 1.5 inches long. Argh!

My wife partially watered the back yard tomatoes and will finish it today.
