Mr. Stripey came back nicely after fertilization. Not much fruit, but his leaves are no longer discolored.
The Ace fruit keeps growing larger and larger, with no sign it will ever ripen!

The cherry tomato, Sungold, has dozens of fruit, several ripening daily, even though the plant is still leggy.

Winner for growth and heath is the Yellow Brandywine. The Japanese Trifele is the leader in fruit production. The Yellow Brandywine did lose a large stem the other day due to a high wind. I had to tie up a lot of the other large, heavy stems. It is a huge, gorgeous green plant with a fair number of tomatoes. But, the Japanese Trifele is producing like no tomato plant I have ever grown, including cherries! One is starting to show color. They are beautiful, pear shaped and as large as the average pear. The neighbors will definitely have to share in this plant's harvest!
