    Glad to hear that you also remove tomatoes before they are ripened completely – I’m paranoid that birds will get them.. or squirrels.

    I have 3 plants going – one is a yellow tomato, another is Roma, and I forget the other, but it’s not doing well at all. It has 2 fruits that seem like they should’ve ripened already… and the leaves are not looking good, and no babies/flowers :-( It’s only my second year trying tomatoes. Advice? I have them all in pots so they can be spared the extra hot sun.

    Interesting. I’ve never heard of the Porter tomato. I’d like to know how they taste!

    I have had very good luck with the Porter. Have planted two 30 in. apart, each of the last three years, and they have produced very well. The two together grew about 6 ft. wide and same height. With plantings in the spring, harvesting throughout the summer till November, I had to leave town, and knowing it was scheduled to freese while away, I harvested all the green tomatoes off these two bushs about mid November, placed 85 pounds of them on newspapers in dining room, we were still eating tomatoes after January 1st.
