While the vast majority of my heirloom tomato plants fried in the heat of this 106 degree summer, the few that are on the side in partial shade, several Cherry Tomatoes and a mystery heirloom, striped green tomato, are still hanging in there and setting new fruit. I can’t believe it. The little Juliet on the patio is trying as well. I pulled up most of the fried plants last weekend and started letting the garden rest with some compost and worm castings, before I turn it and plant the first of the Fall garden here in a couple of days. Here is a photo of my tomato harvest the last few days. I’m headed out to pluck some more here shortly.
