    Wow. Frost free-ish date here is June 15th.
    Have one for me with a little salt.
    Back to my hibernation hole now, muttering...

    Mine ain't far behind. I have maters about as big as a silver dollar right now. Can't wait for that first good bite, and a nice fried green one.

    I won't be able to even think about getting tomatoes in for another month at least. Hopefully it stays warm and dry enough to actually get a couple to ripen. :(

    You get 2 crops?! Wow!
