Choo Choo...I think I can, I think I can! My tomatoes should take a lesson from the little engine that could. These have been in the ground since February 28th and not even a sign of red yet. I have 10 varieties growing this year: Black Prince, Black Pear, San Marzano, Romeo, Pineapple, Stump of the World, Tangerine, Mortgage Lifter and two cherries (one Sun Gold and one volunteer that I received from a neighbor). We've only picked about 40 cherries so far but I am hoping that any moment now I will be seeing red. O.K. maybe I need your help. On the count of three, let's send red thoughts to my tomatoes. Ready...1...2...3...THINK RED!!! There, hopefully that did it!
