This horrible heat has caused the tomatoes to stop blooming. Tomatoes are suffering, even though I am watering the tomato plants. It is just too hot to bloom or produce fruit. Even when we get a temperature drop, it will take 5 week to produce a tomato. It takes about 3 weeks for the tomato to grow and then 2 more weeks for the big ones to ripen.
Today I harvested the ingredients, along with the home grown onions and garlic, for ratatouille.
On Hubpages Read My Hubpages about saving seed and tomatoes.

Why hot tomatoes stop growing
This tangerine colored cherry tomato is little and the sweetest tomato I’ve ever eatin. This is the only tomato that I will for sure have in the garden next year.
