An Overload of Tomatoes for Us
Aug 12 2016
It was another stinking hot humid day here in Ohio. We have had about two months of high 80 & 90 degree weather and very humid. We have been without rain though until two days ago we hot 1 ¼ inches in an hour and today we got .8 tenths in a half hour.
I had 12 tomato plants in my little 4X8 raised garden and they were not getting ripe. I just about had to water them every night but the grandson helped a lot of evenings doing the watering. I have a mix of Big Boy Beef Steak, Roma cherry, and Rutgers. I have had three bowls of mostly the Roma and Rutgers, but today I had the Beef Steaks come on too.
What you see here was about all picked today. Looks like I will be cooking some tomatoes tomorrow!
