Hello,As per previous posters, I am also growing “Gardeners Delight”, the plants are healthy and are producing a lot of tomatoes. However, they are no signs of the tomatoes ripening. I am watering them regularly and feeding them once a week. I am pinching out the new side shoots but I am wondering if I should also pinch the tops to prevent more flowers from producing so that the plan can “concentrate” on the fruit? I know that more sunshine would also help, but there is nothing I can do about this… The plants are in a sunny sheltered spot outdoors. Thank you!

2008 is not turning out to be a good year for outdoor tomatoes and this happens often. They will ripen later on when enough sunshine and growing can be done.

Stop feeding and reduce watering unless there is dry weather.
