Dorothy,

It looks great.

Bush Early Girl is the 1 of the 5 early tomato plants that is setting fruit right and left. For early tomatoes, and lots of them, it is hard to beat Bush Early Girl. Some years it seems like it has more fruit than leaves.

Looking at your photo has made me hungry for a fresh tomato, and the fruit on my Bush Early GIrl are about the size of walnuts so we probably have at least 40 days to go before we harvest one, depending on how warm and sunny this month is and how quickly the fruit do or do not enlarge and ripen.

It is supposed to be 80 degrees here tomorrow, so the five early plants will like that. Only Red Beefsteak hasn't set fruit yet, and it is blooming now so it should set some soon. BEG was the first to bloom and set fruit and she is miles ahead of all the others.

Dawn
