Journal May 25, 2017 - Tomato plants fruiting

This is the weekend that most gardeners in New York will be placing their tender plants like tomatoes in the ground.  For my part, I elected to go with the long range weather forecast and planted tomatoes, eggplant and peppers in the ground several days ago.

All of the plants have buds or small fruit and are much larger than anything available locally at garden centers.

The greenhouse tomatoes are much much farther ahead of the garden plants, even though they were started on the same day.  Once again, the difference is protective growing, where heat and light work their magic on the plants.
