I have two heirloom Cherokee Purple plants and the tomatoes all have blossom end rot.

I have an Evergreen heirloom that produces green tomatoes and so far it's got ONE tomato on it. I have a Mr. Stripey heirloom and it's barely putting out fruit. The only heirloom that's doing well is a Green Zebra.

I have two hybrid San Marzano's and two hybrid plum plants and they're really starting to produce.

I'm really disappointed in the heirlooms. I went to the County Ag Dept, but they just suggested lessening watering. I did so, but it hasn't helped.

We had weird weather in June/July and my roma tomatoes suffered blossom rot, too. The weather is back to normal and we're getting huge yields of roma and other tomatoes - no rot. We have about 40 tomatoes on the kitchen counter right now and there are more ready to pick.

Eggplant, broccoli, jalapeno and sweet peppers are going crazy - lots of yield. Beans and peas didn't do as well as they could have, but they weren't bad.

Basil, dill, cilantro and oregano are doing great.

Homemade salsa rocks when all the ingredients come from your garden!

That sounds excellent to me. Do you plan on canning some salsa?

Soil is primarily poor in Florida; mostly sand mixed in soil.
Even potting soil and top soil have sand mixed in bags
sold at WalMarts, Home Depot, and elsewhere in Florida.
Therefore tomatoes are hard to grow in abundance, if any
at all.

My tomatoes have lots of splits in them. I try to eat them anyway. I just had a BLT for breakfast this morning with Baconnaise. YUM!!

I would if it lasted that long, but I have a teenage boy in the house. Salsa doesn't last long. No food lasts long.

Anyway, yes, I hope at least to can some tomatoes.

I took a canning class and was hoping to can up a bunch of tomatoes. Now I think that may have to happen next year.
