I have been off on vacation for the last week. Since the weather has been so nice (not hot & humid) I took some time off to enjoy the backyard and the plants. The two tomatoe plants have been growing like weeds. I had to chop off about 45 cm from the end of each branch, not a problem as one of the plants is almost 175 cm after the pruning. They are just loaded with Roma tomatoes and regular tomatoes. Now that it is later at night I can start doing the postings on the next set of planters.
