    Looks as if the yeild is gonna be good this year for the tomatos. I will be canning many quarts of them, making salsa, hot sauce etc. How are they growing in your state this year? Man I love them maters!:smile2: rollo

    Jason, them babies are looking good! :wink:

    I have (4) plants on the front deck, they are getting primed also.

    Funny story, the drug helicopter was hovering at around 500 foot doing slow circles around my property the other day. I was slowly getting the boat ready, walking in and out of the house.

    It didn't hit me until I looked at the planters.

    Them boys were probably saying at first, "This guy cant be this stupid?"

    The plants look great, and plenty of them. Harvest should be a great advent for you.

    That's a great looking crop! Still waiting on mine to come in; I've picked maybe a half dozen, still small. But we've been having alot of rain the past week, so hopefully they'll really take off now!!

    Is there a deer in the first picture? Looks like on the left hand side of the first picture there is a deer in your garden.

    Got my first ripe one 7/18, not bad for around here. Me and neighbors are loving the fried green and ripe ones. Yellow squash are tasting good too!
    Almost forgot about the peppers, doing great especially the jalapenos!

    Mine are doing ok but not as good as past years. We had a bad flood last month and it took it's toll. We lost some plants early on.

    I guess we're lucky in SC. Been getting tomatoes for a couple months now. Canning and salsa making are done and now we're giving them away.

    Best breakfast in the world is a sandwich with egg, deer sausage, and fresh tomato.

    I'm over run with them this year. We have been canning, giving them away, my wife has been trying to learn how to make Salsa but she refuses to look at a recipe. Most of it ain't hittin' on much! Ha,Ha, Ha
    Anyway, I got a lot of big ones for mater sandwiches and I cooked up a huge pot of chilli tonight with fresh maters, green peppers, hot peppers, and red peppers fresh from the garden, then canned the chilli.
