Splitting, make it stop!
Okay, the El Nino season may have ended. But as always we get more rain after the El Nino season. I have tried two new tomato vatieties, Jetsetter and Ball's Beefsteak to go with my old standby, Jetstar. I have picked too many tomatoes this week that have split open. The Jetstar tomatoes had very few splits compared to the two newbies. We need to have a little more heat to help ripen the tomatoes evenly.
Are any of you have this problem of too much rain and too many split tomatoes??
PS, a red tail hawk visited me yesterday and got one our squirrels! I hope he will come back for a few more.
