Almost...

Today......this bush has 40 tomatoes on it, we think they are killing the bush, but will make it through. 20 of the 40 are on the tip top of the plant. Bob has it tied to the wall to hold it up, who knew they would get 5 feet tall? not us
we are waiting for this one to ripen on the vine.... yummmmmmmm

Thank you, following back. :))

I had seen some of the leaves looked bad, that must be why!!! There is so much fruit that it's draining the energy from the leaves! Maybe they are waterlogged, too? It kind of looks like that. Every time I see that beautiful header, with the hibiscus reaching up to the sky, it makes me smile!!

Tipper said...

I'm jealous : ) Won't be too long for me though!

I am surprised to see how wonderful tomato is growing in your own garden. I can imagine how delicious it is. Wonderful yield, indeed!

Oh I am so envious! I haven't even put mine in the ground yet here in northern CA!

I love tomatoes. Especially when they're home grown. A salad just doesn't taste quite the same without a fresh tomato in it :-)

Oh mu goodness - I did know that tomatoes have to be staked up - they grow high and there are special stakes just for them.

Love it and they look so good. Glad they survived the storm.

5 feet tall? wow, I've never seen one get that tall.

Snapper II said...

No No! don't wait. Mater sandwiches now. Fried green maters now. I can taste them I can smell them. You do realize you have a cash crop. You are rich. He he he he

Sandra, do you think there will be enough tomatoes for a huge salad for all your blogging friends - at 5 feet tall you would think so.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

YUM..... Who cares what the leaves look like IF the tomatoes taste good. I can almost taste that one!!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm very impressed with this tomato plant and all the good eating you will soon be doing from it. There's nothing better than home-grown tomatoes.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, super yummy!
The tomatoes are taking all the nutrients to grow and ripen, looks like they are doing fine.

But no fried green tomatoes, I thought your were a Southern girl?

I KNOW they will ripen on the vine, because of those green thumbs you two have going on! I am so impressed. Way to cold here to think of tomato plants. I think everyone will be jealous of your tomatoes on that trusty vine.

You have a decent crop there. You will be making all sorts of tomato products.

Madeline said...

Your tomatoes are making my mouth water. Wish you did not live so far away or I would invite myself for a tomato sandwich....:-) Enjoy them. They will be ripe before you know it! Beautiful pictures.

Your tomatoes look great, we never have very good luck with tomatoes. Only our cherry tomato has any on it, the others are flowering but no tomatoes.

Remington said...

YUMMY! Won't be long now and you will have more tomatoes than you will know what to do with!

srp said...

If we don't hear from you for several days we will send out a search party and have them start with the tomato plant. I feel a movie in here... "The Attack of the 50 Foot Tomato plant!!". Really... just jealous here. You do have a recipe for tomato sauce don't you? :)

LC said...

Tomatoes look yummy! Could the leaves be evidence of wilt? We have that problem here, too. Sandra, I only have 2 little ones on my Early Girl tomato plant but I feel like a proud parent!
