Confused - no tomatoes in hot summers?
I just read a thread in the vegetable forum that has me confused and distressed. Tomato blossoms don't set when the daytime temperatures get above 90, so...you don't get tomatoes.
But here on the Front Range -- and for that matter most of the Great Plains, south, and Midwest -- summer temperatures are almost always above 90 during July and August and part of June as well. And you can't grow tomatoes any time other than summer because tomatoes can't take the cold.
So that would indicate that getting tomatoes is impossible during the summer, the only time tomatoes can grow.
Huh? So how are people getting tomatoes?
Mine started flowering a week ago, and I admit I haven't seen any tomatoes forming.
Someone with much more gardening experience than I have want to shed some light on this? (Light but not heat, apparently.)
