Re: Before crash....veggies

The regular tomatoes stop producing about this time of year here--when night temperatures stay above 73-74 degrees. The wild tomatoes produce a while longer. We always have a large patch of them [courtesy of Ms Mockingbird] somewhere in the yard. This year's patch is about 10 feet by 15 feet. There must be 1,000 tomatoes in it. Great flavor. And easy to pick since they grow and ripen in bunches of six to eight.

Jim, have you tried the Mexican or Texan wild??? We usually have two tomato
seasons here, early spring and late fall....other than that it was too hot.
But...since we've grown the Texas wild, we've literally had tomatoes year
round for the past two years (2 year old plant).
The only time it slowed down was over Christmas when it snowed. We figured
that would be the end of the plant, but it's been loaded for a couple months
now. Didn't freeze back a bit.
It made it through snow, drought, heat, and torrential rains....no problem.
I can't praise this particular tomato enough.

Tomatoes do well here, Cathy, until the night temps get so high they
prohibit flowering.
