It is now August 2, 2011--one of the three hottest summers on record for the state of Kansas. We're in the middle of a drought but daily watering kept this plant going for me. Being a determinant, my Sun Leaper has finished bearing for the season and now is nothing but a brown, dried-up crispy critter, but it gave me sweet juicy tomatoes for at least a month before that happened. I hope to try growing it again next year.
