Thanks for the answer, Phil, but I may be confused ­ do you not water at
all?  Or when do you water?  Its 100º today and I¹m trying to trickle water
on the tomatoes in the big garden but very frustrating.  Our summer is going
well ­ our intern leaves to go back to France on Saturday and we¹ll really
miss him!  I¹m going to have to train my 15 and 16 year old granddaughters
to dig potatoes with me :)  I¹ve wonder about you with all the flooding up
there ­ we¹d take some moisture about now!

Joan we have always had dry land tomato's because our wells won't water
gardens, when two families and 50 cows, and 100 ewe's and all the kids have
first go at it.  The tomato's do really taste good but I really never found
any tomato that I really didn't like.  Hope your summer is going well for
you and Jim, ours has been very wet and a huge amount of roads are closed
due to the Missouri River flooding and I 29 is shut down for this summer,
dumping a lot of Interstate traffic over on all the 2 lane roads, sometimes
it takes awhile to just get on the road waiting for traffic.
 
Good luck this marketing year
