That looks like y'all had some wild weather Judy!

My cousin lives in Plano, Tx and she said they broke a 93 year old record. It was 108 degrees today. She said she was in her car traveling through town and her car showed the outside temps at 111.

We are south of her and I was out in the heat all day until around 3:30 and had to give it up. I like hot weather vs. cold but it was just sweltering. I bet I drank two gallons of water today.

We received 3 inches of rain Monday afternoon and 2 inches yesterday (Wed)  evening . Unheard of for July. We were sure grateful. However, there was a lot of lightening with the storm yesterday and look what happened a 1/2 mile from the house and right across from our pasture. Don't go out in bad weather or they say , even "if you just hear thunder ".  This tree could be you ! It blew all the bark off and the top out and onto the road.

General Discussion / Sweet Potato Tots
« Last post by Daniel Grant on Today at 09:28:11 PM »
I tried some sweet potato tots the other day and found them interesting. Someone on here posted the recipe and directions for regular potato tots a year or two ago. I was wondering if any one has the recipe to make the sweet potato tots?

Corvette it might help us figure out some of your problems if we had a general idea of what part of the country your garden is in.  If your in a very dry area 4 times per day might be just right, but here in the Midwest or the south that sounds like a lot of water.  Your leaf curl might be a sign of stress or tomato disease .

Cut some okra, picked MS silver crowder peas and some tomatoes.  I'll be picking some Blue Lake pole beans tomorrow for the weekend.

Wosiewose - good to have you back, GG - fire it up and turn that hose on!! Rabbit - if your tomato leaves start turning brown and curling like the rest of ours, it may be that string of cussing that caused it - just sayin'.... LOL!!  :D

I think everyone has a valid point and there could be lots of reasons for no fruit.  That sure sounds like a lot of water though- 45 minutes 4 times a day!    Couple that with the heat and sticky pollen issue.  There may even be some blight.  You may want to consider the copper fungicide and less water. 

It has been a rough year all around for tomatoes.  Someone was posting earlier about how short their season was for them and now I am seeing that too.  My tomatoes aren't putting many if any fruit on, so it may be time to plan more for fall.

My health kick tomato seeds that I planted Sunday are also coming up. I am pretty excited about that! Cut a big sack of okra today and also ran the mower through the peas (and grass) and will till them in tomorrow or the next day.
