My best year ever for tomatoes. I'm actually getting my first-ever regular-size toms. These are 4th of July. The fruit is about golf-ball size, which is huge for me. I have 8 fruit already, and 4 more clusters of blossoms coming. happy turtle

This is my latest planting of tomatoes.  I just had to add a 3 foot extension.  It is now 8 feet tall.  Hopefully this planting will last late into the fall.

Eight foot tall tomato cage, and the tomato is growing out the top of it. Don't know what variety this tomato is - it is from seeds a friend gave us years ago, that she called her "salad tomato". It has a lot of 1.5" to 2" tomatoes, and keeps producing right up until frost kills it.

Do you guys pinch the suckers and train vertically like ANSFG advises?  Looks like a lot bushier than what I have going on out there.  So far all I have gotten is cherry tomatoes!

I pinch them until they develop the first branch, and then I let them go. That keeps the bottom open for air flow, and they seem to do well in the cages after that.  Years ago I kept all of the suckers pinched out to force them into a single stem, but I didn't get any more tomatoes and it was a lot more work.

Post  OhioGardener 7/22/2019, 3:55 pm

This morning my wife noticed the Mockingbird was going in and out of the tomato cages, and she wondered if it was looking for bugs.  I went out to investigate, and discovered that the stinker had taken a bite out of every red tomato. It didn't eat any of the tomatoes, and it didn't bother the green tomatoes, but it just took one bite out of every tomato that was red or beginning to turn red. It didn't bother the yellow cherry tomatoes either, just the red ones.

So, off to Lowe's I head to get some bird netting to wrap around the tomato cages. I needed some netting anyway to drape over the Highbush Cranberry to keep the Cardials from eating all of them again.  Hopefully, we will get some tomatoes without bird holes in them now.

The first Brandywine tomato for the year. Not fully ripe yet, but I had to save it from the Mockingbird.

Tomato Tuesday - 2018 & 2019 - Page 7 Empty 4th of July Hybrid Tomato

Post  countrynaturals 8/24/2019, 12:08 pm

Except for the cherries, here's my first true tomato success story. 4th of July. Unfortunately, it's a hybrid, the tomatoes are kinda small -- a little bigger than a golfball -- and not very sweet, but mild. They didn't really start producing by the 4th of July, either. So, why am I bragging? That plant is now 7' tall -- in a container -- and even though I picked 2 the other day, and 2 more this morning, it still has 11 more on the vine and lots of new blossoms. Even the cherries stopped producing during our recent heatwave, but this baby acts like it's just getting started. happy turtle

Snow White -- probably never again. This puppy is huge, and year-to-date has produced exactly one pea-sized fruit, and now one more blossom. Rolling Eyes This is on the same balcony as the 4th of July that's still in the double-digits -- fruit and new blossoms -- during a heat wave (110+). I suppose there's still a chance the snow white could turn itself around and make me eat crow, but I'm not optimistic. Sad

My tomatoes shut down production 3 weeks ago when the temps. got too high. I have been really trying to keep the water in the beds even enough to keep the tomatoes that are ripening on the vines from cracking. They are pretty stressed and I've resorted to placing market umbrellas over them, and they don't look too bad, but some leaves have turned yellow. I'm praying that the Early blight hasn't set in on the stressed plants. I'm considering brewing up a worm poo tee and give them a foliar feeding and hope for the best.

YIKES, Yardslave -- I'm complaining because production slowed down a little. Embarassed Today could be our last horrendously hot day, so maybe things will start to improve, tomorrow. geek
