if you're referring to romas specifically, i couldn't tell you
what might be wrong, except my guess would be some
quirk in the seeds, some mutation they accidentally stumbled
i was growing romas as my one and only there for quite a
few years, and they just up and quit growing properly no
matter what i did. the last few years i've just been grabbing
up whatever seed i could get first and quit seeking out roma.
not to sound like some conspiracy dude, but i sorta think
that a lot of these seeds of a lot of vegetable plants meant
for the home gardener are G.E.'d in some way to not do as
well as they once did. when i first started serious gardening,
i was able to buy good bulk seed at a local nursery, and they
always all sprouted well, and the mature plants always yielded
well. these last few years, none of my tomatoes or green peppers
or okra have done well at all, and barely have enough yield to be worth
the trouble. the yard long green beans from last year would
be the lone exception. the other stuff makes beautiful plants
and foliage, but the fruits don't do well at all
The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
