We planted 5 tomato plants in May. Due to our altitude, which brings early and late frosts, we have a short growing season, so we select varieties of vegetables that mature quickly. (And, boy-oh-boy, the squash is maturing all over the place!) One of our tomato plants indicated it would be ready to harvest in 62 days. Today is the 62nd day the plant has been in the ground. And sadly, we won't have a harvest tonight.
