Lousy Tomatoes This Year
Every year I put in a handful of tomato plants for my father. Last year I planted Big Beef variety and the tomatoes were wonderful. I planted the same variety this year, but when they're cut open they have a lot of white hard veiny stuff in them and very little flavor.
There are two things that are different this year....we have had a ton of rain. I have run my sprinklers once in the last 6 weeks. I believe we broke the record for the rainiest July. The other thing was that last year I bought the plants in a local nursery and this year I bought them in Home Depot.
So would rain cause this? Are Big Beef's the same whether you get them at more of an upscale place vs Home Depot? I'd like to understand this and avoid it next year if I can (obviously I can't control the rain, but I can go back to the local nursery).
