BTW, I planted them around the last week of May or thereabouts.
Finally, the holdouts have suddenly begun to ripen. Perhaps it's the cooler (relatively speaking) weather lately ? We sure haven't had much rain these last couple of weeks.
I posted two digital pictures (taken this morning) for you to see at
One is of today's "harvest", and the other is fairly representative of the dozen or two remaining on the vines.
This is my first year gardening with any kind of serious intent, so everything is "new" to me. If you have any comments or suggestions after taking a look at the photos, then I'd be glad to hear them. Maybe they will be useful to some of the other beginners too !
P.S. My wife ---and the friends with whom we have shared the tomatoes--- assure me that they taste great which is nice to hear :-)
