Attack of the killer tomatoes!

I spent several hours trying to control the chaos that I call heirloom tomatoes.

Here is my nephew Leahm standing next to them.



Lot's of good looking fruit.


This is one of the gardens just packed with weeds. Luckily they pull right out. Hopefully I can post pictures of it tomorrow looking much less weedy. Got some done tonight but not much.

Lucky you! We are not having many tomatoes this year. When I don't want my tomato plants to grow higher, I pinch the tops. I also remove suckers if there is no enough time for tomatoes to develop and mature on the new branches. Great tomatoes you have there Michelle!

I have a similar scene going on at my garden, although most of my tomatoes seem to have the dreaded blight. At first I was doing so good pruning the heirlooms, but I guess I forgot for awhile and now they are EVERYWHERE! Beautiful tomatoes on those vines though!

I got some nasty blight on my squash. Too much rain?

I don't grow tomatoes. Too cold where I live.
