It's true! Though we do get occasional days in the 100s, mid-90's is more typical of July weather. I don't know how the weather is in Dallas, but for us the summer is often muggy as all get-out, so it ends up feeling like 100-something even if it's not. As they say, it's the humidity—not the heat—that gets you.
On the other hand, you guys have a tornado season and we don't, so I'm not about to envy your climate LOL.
We've got some early girls in our garden, but our generic-determinate-red-tomato of the year is the Rutgers tomato, not celebrity. We also have beefsteak, golden jubilee, better boy, large red cherry, and one each of lemon boy and Cherokee purple (they were strays at a home depot sale we bought on a whim). Oh, and a few volunteers of unknown identity (judging from the bed they popped up in, probably either yellow pear or black krim).
...Aren't Celebrity tomatoes only supposed to get like 4-ish feet tall?
