I had a great tomato harvest this season until we got the 3 weeks of 
100 degree temps in August.  That pretty much did in the maters.  
Since we've had more reasonable (to me) temps, the plants have 
recovered but there's something odd going on.  I can't get one of 
these puppies to ripen on the vine without fermenting.  Not one of 
any variety.  Nope, I'm not talking blossom end rot I'm talking 
fermenting from the inside out. 

Even the cherry tomatoes have this problem.  I could get drunk by 
eating the Sungolds and Red Peachs.  Any ideas?


PS Good luck with those wascally docs, George.
