Not well. I'm not much of a tomato-ranchin' bum this year.
This is a close-up of "Patio" tomatoes in a pot on the (duh!) patio.
I have had to trim off some ugly, deathy leaves that were covered with a brown, mildewy powder. I'm no horticulturist, but I blame the tree that died over the past year just outside the patio gate, dropping its diseased (yet oddly gorgeous) leaves into all my suburban agricultural endeavors.
There are eight tomatoes in the early stages of ripening, and then there is a petite cluster of new, healthy green leaves at the base of the plant. I wish them well, but at this rate it will be January before they reach maturity. (Stranger things have happened.)
The way things are going, it will still be warm and balmy in January anyway.
Man, it's hot!
Is anybody else suffering in the heat?
