Peek in the Greenhouse

Same ol' same ol' around the greenhouse. 

It's a great blessing to have such a thing, because our cold, wet spring has bled over to summer.
With storm systems bringing in more than a half an inch of rain practically every week, it would be depressing to have to rely on solely an outdoor space to grow tomatoes and peppers.

 While grocerying this weekend, i saw numerous shoppers walking away from our organic food store with 4-6 tomato plants.  They got a great deal--each two foot tall plant for only $5!  I said a little prayer for them...i hope their plants reward them this year.  Mother Nature isn't helping though...last night it got down in the lower 40's Fahrenheit again.

 The tomatoes are trucking right along.

Come to Momma!
 Once they all start producing like the plant above, we are going to have a serious problem on our hands. :)   We're entertaining the idea of becoming our state's first U-Pick tomato farm. :)

The Isis Candy tomatoes from Renee's Garden are doing great!  They are recovering nicely from my maming of them, and we are looking forward to trying their supposedly sweet fruits.

 Looks like i have a tomato virus to investigate too.
I haven't a clue where to start.  Does anyone know of any good tools to determine which virus you have?  I don't see any tell tale black or gray spots, so i doubt it's blight.  The leaves are super curly only at the top of the plant.  TMV maybe?
