I am in my third season, now, of having a rogue patch of tomatoes that is grown by sheer and utter neglect. Given we've had a severe drought since early spring, and weeks of excessive heat with summer temperatures up over 115 F, I'd thought it was a lost cause... but, following the first rains after the drought / heat wave ended, i saw a few sprouts emerge from beneath the litter. They've grown quite literally like weeds... and are now quite large and sprawling plants, and in full flower, covered in more flowers than i've ever seen on a tomato, the flowering now sustained over the last two weeks. The lawn might be mostly dead... the local wildlife population have been decimated... but there might still be a bounty of feral tomatoes before first frost...
