These are pictures I posted last week of my tomatoes.http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,10535.msg105757.html#msg105757
It is more hot and humid this year than I can remember in a long while. That is why I commended you for trying to grow your own tomatoes. Steve (Ev) gave me some plants he started from seed and he is a very good gardener. Cranky is right, it is hard to grown from seed. I only had five plants that made it from the one I started from seed. The one picture where the big tomatoes are on, are the ones that made it. I donít have a green house or something similar. I have been growing things for years and I still have problems. I did better with the oregano from seed, than the tomatoes. I did grow some red onions this year and they made it, but I used onion sets for them.
I think this year is the best I have done so far and I have also been growing different things for about over 40 years. I know many Amish and Mennonite people and they do have some sort of green houses to start from seed. Many years ago, I had big gardens, but they took a lot of work.
I just like to get outside and do work, because I like the outdoors and watching things grow. In my opinion food just tastes better that you have grown yourself.
Keep trying and you will be rewarded.
