The Tomato plants are fainting?

These plants are so heavy with fruit…it is crazy. The hubs says he has never seen such large tomato plants.

Two of them are heirloom tomato plants that were volunteers in my neighbors garden.

 

 

 

 

She brought over four clumps in the spring. So they are surprise tomatoes. The other is a San Marzano. I have gently propped them up. I am just hoping the fruit all ripens.

  1. Angela… I have two large tomato plants in my yard that were volunteers, and because they were volunteers i didn’t do anything to prop them up in the beginning. The fruit is low to the ground because it is heavy, but I’m hoping that they ripen to maturity anyways!
