This summer has been very cool up here (which is better than the heat wave they are having in continental Europe - we had one here last summer and it was tough to say the least..) and, while it is good in many ways, it has considerably slowed down tomato growth and development.
True Colours is in full bloom and looks very healthy overall, but I hope that as summer continues, we'll get warmer days. At this pace, there won't be even green fruits to pick in September...

I almost lost this tomato plant twice. once to a dropped tray of seedlings, more recently to my concern about the droopiness of the plant. I was reading another thread about bacterial wilt and was thinking of pulling it, but after closely monitoring it for a few days and not seeing any rapid disease progression it narrowly escaped the garbage bag. In this case I am so glad that I didn't choose to err on the side of caution!

First photo is the droopy plant June 24, second photo fruits forming:

Y’all are hard on plants.
It is the “ wispy” look in a potato leaf plant. These are hearts.
