First to set fruit for 2018 out in the garden is Midnight Sun. Still about 10 c at night, days around 22.
The others not far behind

Cute wee heart, Karen!
Yesterday I noticed that Paul Robeson and Gregori's Altai have fruit set.

June 14: Expecting these to be my first of all of my outdoor large tomatoes to ripen. Midnight sun and true colours both set in the cold nights. Tundra and Polaris lagging behind this year, really hardly any of my other large fruited plants have any fruit yet. Many just starting to bloom.

They are beautiful, Karen. Soon you will taste them. I imaging you must be jumping inside.
It is quiet early for your area.

I hope you will try some of my tomatoes B.B.
the whole idea of all of my projects is to have tomatoes that grow well in a Canadian garden. We are practically neighbors you and I.
