We've had lots of rain here after a long dry spell. Most of my tomatoes (brandywine and cherry) are 7 to 8 feet tall and full of fruit.
Some Pink Brandywine are turning color and a few cherry tomatoes are red. New cucumbers ripen every day, as do zucchini. The moon & stars watermelon have taken over, which is why I planted them on the end and trained their vines to grow away from the garden.
Watered in compost & rock dust tea on the test area - we'll see how that works.
