    the large corporate tomato farms in south Florida have two growing seasons for tomatoes ………..and they take a two month break in the summer because of the heat.

    my question: while planting in the spring season yields a crop before the summer heat ……..am i able to maintain (keep) the same ‘mature’ indeterminate plants for another crop in the fall when the temperatures are right. (understanding, of course, that there’ll be no setting of fruit in the extreme temperatures of the summer.)

      Mel, for nonstop tomatoes you’ll need to plant in the spring and then again at the end of June. As the first season goes along the plant will start getting tired and production will drop. So replanting for a second season will give you a fresh crop! Happy growing!

    Hello, I have two small boxwood shrubs that I’ve had for a couple of years. We had a few heavy snowfalls this past winter (I’m in zone 6) that weighed the shrubs down but they quickly bounced back once the snow melted. By spring some of the leaves had turned yellow but I cut those off. The shrubs are nice and green now but the stems are all splayed out and flopped over. Do you know if there’s anything I can do to save them? Or is it time to get new shrubs? Thanks.

      I would recommend waiting it out another year to see if they perk back up. Good luck, Joe
