I planted your Beefsteak Big Boy and Beefsteak Druzka seeds that I got from Amazon in spring so I would have good home grown tomatoes this summer. Seeds had good germination and the plants are growing great. The problem is the tomatoes aren't getting ripe. I always have ripe tomatoes by,now. What could be the problem.

I am not sure. I had the same problem with all eight varieties we planted this year. Plants look beautiful but the tomatoes are not any good.

Looking at the internet, it may be that we used too much Garret's Juice and HastaGro. This is our first time to plant in sand. Maybe that the sand is retaining the nutrients better then we first though it was. Cut back on the fertilizing and see if it helps any.

Here our tomato season is over. Temperatures are too high.
