One of the tomato plants was heavy with fruit so when it weakened from lack of water it collapsed on it's stems. That plant may not make it. The other plants were better supported by their tomato cages and will probably be ok even though a few lost leaves and stems. Needless to say on Monday morning all plants received extra water rations.
The good news is the tomatoes are starting to take off and we listed eggplant and some tomatoes with the Indian Rocks Co-Op. Plus there were plenty of garden fresh tomatoes to accompany me on the trip to the everglades where our group eats well and shares so much food that we all probably gain weight on the trip.
As they say, you are what you eat and last night was such a delight using a half dozen of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and several extra large Black Krim tomatoes (not shown) which are just starting to turn red. The flavor is amazing. We diced the tomatoes and added to a large pan of thinly sliced onions, lots of garlic and some white wine. A little cream, salt, pepper and pasta .... heavenly and just one more reason I'm the lucky guy.
