my tomato plants have just taken off this week after the fertilizer overload. So now I am wondering when I might expect to see blooms on them. Or if I need to do something to them to get them to bloom.

Give the poor blighters a chance.
They'll do their thing:)

Hey Longy,

I had just taken a bite of sausage when I clicked on your response. Now I have to clean the key board. [Big Grin]

Your right though I should learn patience. [Embarrassed]

It's just that they grew so fast once they started. Just this morning I had to tie one to a stake because it had completely bent over. They are sure looking great though.

I still need that magnifying glass. I mis-read your post Phoenix.

Well I made a bit of a booboo. I transplanted them into the miracle gro potting soil that has a time released fertilizer in it and then forgot that it did. So then I added miracle gro water soluable all plant fertilizer at half strength. And then I added a bunch of bone meal on top of that all within about a week. My tomatoes are still acting weird. Today I notice that the tops of the plants have made little curly Q's with the top of their branches. I think they are very very drunk or the plant equivalent anyway.
