I was astonished a few days ago to see several tomato plants laden with monster flowers that you've helped me to understand are called "mega blooms." I couldn't believe it when you said that both types of flowers could happen on one plant and lo and behold look what I found today:
The monster bloom is closing, but look at the other regular blooms surrounding it. Very cool. Then, on the Cherokee Purple plant next to it, I've got the makings of three very small tomatoes. I can't wait. These are my first tomato plants from seeds and I'm very proud of them.
Then, as she does so well, Mother Nature throws a bomb. Here's one of my Big Momma tomato plants. The camera wouldn't focus on the black part, but that's where a stem used to be. The stem was limp and there was this black spot in the juncture of it and the main stem.
