Another Question About Indeterminates.

I live in south Texas,
The weather has been really hot.

Do you think,
That if (and that is a VERY big if!)
I can keep my indeterminate tomatoes alive
through this heat,
They might bear fruit this fall?

Seems like I read somewhere
That someone
(living in a mild climate)
kept their indeterminates alive
and bearing for several seasons.

But I don't remember where I read it,
And haven't been able to find it again.

So far the plants look good.
I got them in the ground much too late,
So there hasn't been much fruit from them.

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Rusty

Hi Rusty,

In a word, yes. But you might consider taking some cuttings just in case they don't make it through the summer.

And yes, people in climates that are milder (both summer and winter) and some with green houses are able to keep some indeterminate tomatoes going for more than a single season.

Oh, BTW, just keep typing, the text will wrap automagically.

Thanks, Betsy.
Glad to know I wasn't dreaming it.

I've never taken cuttings from tomatoes before,
Sounds like a good idea.

As for 'keep typing',
well, this is just how I do it.

Rusty
