I was becoming a bit concerned that my six tomato plants had not begun to flower. We have short summers and this one is off to a cool start with temperatures around 12-20 degress Celsius. I love fried green tomatoes, both the movie and the food, but am really looking forward to a toasted tomato sandwich on 12 grain bread with romaine lettuce and a touch of mustard or mayo.
So yesterday I went out to take a look and there they were little yellow flowers. Now we are getting ample rain but need some heat, I do like the cool weather but need it to warm up a few degrees. It’s the end of June we have 8-9 weeks left, maybe 10, some tomatoes will ripen in that time. So I am remaining hopeful.
