So after a week of HOT (as in 100+ degree heat indexes) weather, I figure I'll do an update on the balcony garden.
Some EVIL critter - my best guess is a squirrel - dug one of my baskets and ended up cutting roots of my solar flare tomato!! It was potted with soil left over from last year - and I wonder if said critter hid an acorn or something in the soil and went looking for it?? I did find a few acorns in the bag - since we live under an oak tree I thought they had fallen in..So fingers crossed.. but it does look pretty wilted.
My bush tomato has about a dozen tomatoes- none are showing any signs of wanting to ripen however.
Celebrity is a late fruiter - so just growing a bit - not much else to report on'
Lemon boy - also a late fruiter is just hangin' out
I bought the Sweet n Neat - because it claimed a profusion of bite sized tomatoes on a plant that maxed out at one foot tall. They must be right because it is currently 8" tall and has a bunch of blooms
