After the rain

The sudden glut of moisture from Saturday's rain cracked some of my tomatoes, as you can see here. I've suddenly realized that I don't have a lot of tomatoes left. When I'm growing my own from seed, I usually prefer indeterminate varieties that keep producing more fruit throughout the season. This year I bought plants, and while the big, sturdy seedlings gave me a head start on an early harvest, it looks as if I have determinate types, which tend to produce fruit that all ripen around the same time. I guess when my own plants are done, I'll be buying those big slicers from the farmers market until the frosts come.
