Durgan! Welcome back!!

But HOLY COW!!!!!! Your neighbours must really like you!

Despite the very dry summer and the watering ban I have tosay this was one if myy most successful tomatoe summers as well. The plain old Romas were falling off and I had a Yellow variety (name escapes me at the moment!) that did really well. Mind you I did not have nearly as many plants as you!!
