After complaining about Late Blight on my tomatoes plants at my community plot, it seemed a good day to photograph the beautiful green tomatoes on my 8 healthy plants at home.

They are growing fast. The plants have reached the top of my 5.5 ft supports already. Lots of green tomatoes almost showing signs of color. A few hot days and they’ll ripen fast.

  • Your tomatoes are looking pretty good from the photographs so at least you will get some tomatoes this year.

    Home Grown Tomatoes are always the best.

    Tomatoes are looking good Kathy. I looked, the other day, for late blight after reading your blog. Happy to report that I don't see any.
    After a rain/hail/wind storm the other day I went out to check on my garden. There were a few tomato plants blown sideways and one that was about 2 ft tall that snapped in half. So, I removed the top half of the tomato plant…will the plant now die, or will it recover?
    I, too, have little green tomatoes starting; but not on the plants I started myself. I've got several volunteer plants popping up all throughout the garden; the one sprouting the toms is about 5ft tall and is growing within my beans. I have a few pix on my FaceBook page….http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=82503&id=586131309
    Hope you take a look : )

  • Yes, just a few plants producing well should give us plenty of summer tomatoes. Yummy.

  • What do you do when the tomatoes reach the top of your stakes? Do you just let them keep growing, untethered? Do they flop over? Do you cut them off at the top? I really have no idea, lol.
