    Awesome!! I can't wait until my tomatoes start producing, but it has been colder than usual this year and they are on the small side. I don't want them investing too much energy into blossoms right now so I have been pinching off blossoms so they can grow a bit. Do you know how old your plants are?

    This evening the tomatos are now well above the 2nd ring on the tomato cage, and that is in only 2 days from the last photo I took of them!

    I would think they were 2 to 3 months old when I got them. They are growing so fast!! There are lots of flowers!

    My tomatoes are about the stage of yours. I cant WAIT for that first tomato...yummmmm....

    Did you know that you can take the suckers off of tomatoe plants, stick them in a little pot of soil, water them, and they will root and make your next generation of tomatoes? For free? Especially with you in Arizona, you can plant a fall crop. Essentially, you would never have to buy a tomato plant or seeds ever again.

    It shows.

    I always look at your threads, if for no other reason, than the photos.
