My first tomatoes just turned! I think I'll be able to pick my first by the end of the week. I'm so excited (sorry, I really do love good tomatoes!)

It has been slow going here because of cool weather and cloudy days which we have had plenty. They are ripening slowly although there are a bunch of them. I will post some more pictures soon.

We already got tons of tomatoes! Here on the gulf coast they say to replant no later than August. Since ours are playing out now, very small and dying, we are going to replant and see what happens. Kookie, we've been water now nearly every day because it's been so dry and it doesn't seem to be working. Here we can go all the way to Christmas and get tomatoes. If we get any cold weather here it's late January.

Bryan, I finally got my first tomato on Weds. Yes, I don't know where Cicero is, but here in Galena (the very most NW corner of the state) my plants are monsters because of the cool, gloomy and wet weather (I think I watered them once or twice when they were baby plants). They're so huge I'm not sure I'll be able to find the tomatoes. I pulled my second tomato yesterday, and I see a couple that are finally starting to turn. I promised my family that I'd visit them as soon as the tomatoes come in with a big box of them (Florida has notoriously flavorless tomatoes), but at this rate I think we'll have our first frost before I have enough tomatoes to share. I mostly plant Early Girls because our season is so short.
