We survived the big storm last night. I wasn't awake for it all, but I know there had to have been some hail in there. The shade garden is completely smashed into the ground except the Russian Kale plants that somehow magically survived. The tomatoes apparently too this storm as a welcome to flower. Today there were six open blooms on one of the Silvery Fir Tree tomato plants, and one each on one of the Homestead and one of the Lemon Drop plants. Many more had buds that I anticipate will open over the next few days.
Yesterday when I was out at my parents' house I did notice that the Solanum Spontaneum tomato plant was not only blooming (it had three flowers when it was planted), but now has two tiny tomatoes forming! The review from the lady I bought the seeds from said they were crazy producers, so I'm hoping we will have a lot more coming in soon.
