Lately I've been moaning and groaning about how my summer garden has done so poorly. Well I may have to retract all that moaning and groaning because it looks like I may actually get some tomatoes after all.
In the spring, I started my usual blend of hybrid and heirloom tomatoes from seed with high hopes.
Then tragedy stuck! Well not really but that does sound more exciting than saying, I got too busy and made a conscious effort to cut way back on my vegetable garden. Unfortunately the timing was really bad because at the point in the season I should have been hardening off my tomato seedlings and getting them into the ground. The tomato seedlings sat there, overgrown, in their seed trays.
Very late in the season, I ran out to the nursery and picked up three tomato plants and stuck them in the ground. Looks like that desperation move has paid off because I've got some decent sized green tomatoes in my garden now.
And with the weather expected to be in the 90ies this week in New Jersey, I think everything will be okay. I'll have a fraction of the tomatoes that I usually have but at least I'll get something.
