I don't have that many to chose from but I have literally dozens of
clusters on my three tomato plants which this year for the first time
have reached about 7 feet in height but I had to cut them back a bit
because they were becoming unmanageable in my postage stamp size plot.
the only thing that's changed is that I threw a spoonfull of Osmocote
under them on planting and we've had some cool weather up untill about 3
- 4 weeks ago. (So. Cal cool that is!!)
The lemon boys are delicious and were a real hit with a friends 3 year
old, (have to keep him away from them I think!)

Since I'm going to have more than we'll be able to eat in one go does any
one have any suggestions on how to sundry them. I saw an article in a
gardening mag once but don't know which, seem to remember it looks easy.

Ah well, back to hornworm catching.
