As I read Skippy's Garden Blog, the side line has a counter for the first tomato which she predicts to be around July 31. I too have never harvested a tomato more than a few days before that so you can imagine how excited I am by these guys. Every single one of my tomato plants has fruit. The cherry varieties are small but obviously do not have far to go. These are Matina Early Ripers but my Brandywine are almost as big and they usually do not ripen until mid August.
The first flowers on my peas opened on Thursday and the timing seems all wrong for everything.
