We've all heard about the problem with tomato plants in the heat. Once it gets in the 90's you can forget having any more tomatoes on the vine for a while.
Well even in 100+ heat my tomato plants have laughed at that notion. I didn't see it growing but a few days ago I went out to check on the garden and saw a hint of red low on the tomato plant. I figured it must be some trash blown in on the wind since tomatoes don't produce in high heat.
After getting a closer look I was surprised to find a little tomato a little smaller than my fist, shiny and red.
The reason it grew was the bottom of the plant was protected by a bit of grass that has grown up in the garden, soon to be pulled once the temperatures drop into the low 90's again.
It's gone now though. I ate it...
