I have a dozen Opalka (similar to Roma, but stay on the vine) plants in my garden that literally grew like weeds. I have fruit on them that are double the size of past years but here it is September and there isn't a one that looks like it will ever ripen. I pruned them all back so more sunlight would get in but I don't think that is going to help. Last year at this time I had my salsa all done already..........!!! I have my doubts as to whether I will get any at all this year. I have a cherry tomato plant I put in a container at the same time and it has been producing ripened fruit for at least 3 weeks already. I did learn from the container planting that tomatoes take a LOT of water when growing. The sump on the bottom of the container holds close to a gallon of water and it would not make 2 days before it was totally dry. On hot days it would only make it a day. Any help on how to get these 'maters to ripen would be greatly appreciated.
