I am happy to report that there are tomatoes in the garden. I found two! Over 70 plants and I may get 2 tomatoes.
And that plant is one that was in the greenhouse all winter producing tomatoes and I transplanted it to the garden. There were 10 plants in the greenhouse and 9 of them survived being transplanted. I guess it doesn’t matter that 8 of them didn’t produce anything.
I feel sorry for them though . . they were covered in small tomatoes and the hail knocked them all off and broke the tops out of most of the plants. Then when they were coming back, we had so much hard rain that it broke all the blossoms off so they haven’t had a very good chance to do great things this year.
The plants are big and healthy looking now and I have high hopes of having fall tomatoes if I can keep them alive through summer. If not . . there’s always next year!
