Yes Joe it's the perfect spot. Those get a full 12 hour of sun light during summer and the bricks radiate lots of heat in the evening.

You know your stuff Sal. Ruth and I were small time hobby farmers for about 12 years. We grew most vegetables that we could plant in 3/4 Acres. We caned 20-30 cases a season, no more though it just got to be to much for us.

Thanks guys.
Matt, I've been growing tomatoes for a long time and have never seen a tomato plant as the one you're showing.

I think I see 60 tomatoes on one plant, this is crazy. I had cherry tomatoes do the same, but never full size as you're showing.
Very nice variety.

When my Mom was still with us, around this time of year the front porch would be packed with bushels of Roma tomato from Jersey, well over 100 at times.
We never paid a penny, Maybe they knew they would get good meals, she used to cook for the entire neighbourhood.

Even the butcher used to leave the store and hand deliver her meat. I remember him asking her if it looked good and was afraid while doing so Smiley.
She was 4' tall, but very powerful, me and my 4 brothers kept a straight line. Smiley

Hey Sal, the bottom 6 or 7 inches of my tomato plants are turning brown.  What is going on?  Dominick

Minicuccio, Iím not sure whatís going on weather wise in your neck of the woods, but mine do the same when we get temperatures above normal. It is a natural reaction for the plant while trying to survive.

Sal: as you probably already know the leaves that are on the ground can be pruned back about a good 6" off the ground. That will help. Also we pruned off the suckers as the tomato's grow. I'm not trying to be a know it all, just my learning from my Father.

Not at all Joe, it is good to give information. I personally already know about keeping leaves away from the dirt and pruning back suckers, but there might be some that don't.

I got some dough from trader's Joe, they have one of the best dough for pizza. If I'm not too tired tomorrow I will be making some Margherita with these nice tomatoes, I already have some nice fresh mozzarella.

Very nice Gary, I didn't know you could grow tomatoes up there.

Mine are late this year, but coming along

Made a couple of Margherita and were delicious
