Zombie Tomatoes!

We had warm weather in March we thought would last. We bought 36 little tomato plants. They mostly interesting heirloom kinds like Purple Cherokee and Hillbilly.

We planted them upside down, which I don't think they liked. We had some extra black tubing for drip irrigation and we hung that over the top of the pots because tomatoes like lots of water. Well, they got lots of water, but not from our drip tubing.

As soon as we got everything set up, we got several hail storms! Then it was cool and rainy for a month. the last straw came with hail in May! They aren't exactly dead, but I don't think they will make tomatoes either. Maybe they are zombies and will eat us instead of us eating them. Ahhh!!
