Picked the first summer fruits a couple blackberries and a few strawberry tomatoes and some apples none of which were fully ripe but I was too impatient. Oh well. I am not to focused on the pumpkins, because only one is doing well. I am not sure my tomato can make a personal best but oddly my focus is mostly on a tomato plant that I figured was a lost cause. The Peine and Clayton plants are the biggest healthiest plants I have grown the Peine is at 6'. No megas though a triple way at the top and plenty of large singles. I think the bees avoid the mega blooms. It was harder to get flowers to set in the wet weather now there are many sets but just singles. Not going to cut off 20 singles for one triple. I would rather keep the singles so I can eat big tomatoes every day...!
