A Bad Year For Tomatoes



Is that a bad place?



Rotten from the start...



Beginning to ripen...



Maybe the bad place is just a blemish?



Almost ripe



Ripe enough!



You know, the guy at the plant store said this particular type of tomato would produce bushels and bushels of tomatoes from a single plant. I knew that wasn't true, but I expected more than one tomato, especially one that wasn't rotten from the very start.

I guess it's just a bad year for tomatoes!

*Sigh*

One of my plant has two big tomatoes and only three leaves on the entire plant. we have had too much rain here.

I don't know what kind of dirt you have. We have clay, sticky nasty clay. Our tomatoes do better with some egg shell or bone meal. You could try that.

I got one of those crazy hanging tomato baskets that you see on late night infomercials when you're up too late and had too much to drink. That sucker is producing fabulous tomatoes like crazy.

Our tomatoes haven't even started producing yet, but the broccoli is going crazy. Where are all of the bees?

Loved your little tomato video.

Hi, you! That poor, pitiful tomato! At least the darned thing got ripened up. I am so sorry that the plant didn't even give a second! Your video was cool...put a voice to your blog...
