It's July in Maryland, and the tomato plants look fine (if a big leggy).They have many green tomatoes on them, but so far (from 42 plants), we've only had about five ripe ones. Someone told me that if I pick off some green tomatoes (fried green tomatoes, anyone? ) that the producton will increase and the tomatoes will ripen faster. Does anyone know if that's true?
FYI, I put the plants in the garden the second weekend in May.
