And suddenly not-hot again,

And suddenly not-hot again, as of Wednesday. Actually, it's been beautiful out, tho crisp at night.

    

I'm thinking this is the week! for the jet star's early 3 tomatoes to ripen! Wish me luck. Added Tomatoes Alive! to it because it's sort of mid-season for it, and a few leaves were yellowing. FWIW, I added some Tomatoes Alive! to all growboxes when I planted stuff out, too, but primarily they should be feeding off growbox nutes. I just didn't think they'd OD getting both - the Alive! stuff seems pretty gentle.

It's suddenly hot - as of Tuesday. (Well, hot for CT - in the 70's days, 60's nights.) All tomatoes very happy. The elder jet star tomato is joining this topic from my early indoor/outdoor topic.

    

As of today, all tomatoes in bloom. The juliet (grape/saladette tomatoes) is the only younger plant that's set a fruit yet. Seems like the jet star elder 3 fruit should ripen any day now, but they only set about 5 weeks ago.

We shall see how my hand-lashed bamboo tomato cage works out. Wish me luck...

It was a good choice to put them out last weekend - might have gotten away with it a week earlier, but probably just right. Two of these (bucks and juliet) have buds.

Still pretty chilly, but

Still pretty chilly, but nothing below 40 in the forecast, and generally in the 60's for daytime high... They won't die. Put out the growbox tomatoes today.

Gisette,

  I'd go ahead and toss it.  Sometimes you just get a sickly plant.

Decided yet again to postpone

Decided yet again to postpone planting out tomato seedlings. I could keep them alive now, but they'll grow faster indoors. Picked up a Juliet grape tomato locally for 80 cents to replace the dead cherokee purple. Next week at least two go into a growbox... Probably.

Thanks, Peat. Hmm. Well,

Thanks, Peat. Hmm. Well, maybe I should toss the remaining plant instead of trying to revive it from rooting, huh? Too many contagious illnesses it could be.

Maybe I should stick to hybrids.

Have a look here Gisette,

Have a look here Gisette, could be a few things.

By looking at all the problems with tomatoes, it's a wonder we ever grow them!
