Well, while your people are doing without tomatoes, mine are growing them and are just starting to get some red ones.
They started this tomato plant as a teeny slip of a thing way back in March and now look at it. It has taken over the flower bed that it calls home and threatens to take over my little yard. If you click on the picture, you can see it better.
Here I am posing in front of it (Mom made me) at great peril.
Mom and Dad do not remember what they used for fertilizer but they think they may have used too much.
