Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

This was my worst tomato crop ever. I supported the FFA group where my son-in-law teaches. Bought big beautiful plants. Had a late freeze, they were all destroyed. Scrounged the countryside for more plants could only find a few left-overs. One variety was stupice, which I renamed stupid. Not as big as golf balls. Extremely rainy spring had to put umbrellas over my plants to keep them from drowning. Plants finally started ripening in mid August. Tomatoes seemed mushy with tough skins. My favorite tomato is Goliath but couldn't find any at the late date. On a sunnier note it is October 4 and we are still picking tomatoes Better luck next year. Zone 4.
