15 beefsteak type plants can provide a lot of tomatoes (an average year is 20-30lbs per plant). give them full sun, a gallon of worm castings and keep them regularly watered and you'll be set. even with almost no leaves on the plants for the past several weeks we've still got a bucket of green tomatoes we just picked. the other four buckets look to be ok for ripeness but i can't vouch for flavor until we start processing them and i sample them. i do hope they're worth it since i'd hate to have to bury them.
I am also impressed that my 2 cucumber vines keep slowly but steadily producing, even with the cool cloudy weather.
I picked another 2 off yesterday.
Tomatoes are only green here, lots of tomato flowers, lots of tiny ones growing... nothing even thinking of being red.
we've had a lot of fruits on the plants since they started flowering. i actually would have been ok not doing this last round of picking.
