Most did not make it through the heat

I have to remember that June is the hardest month for plants because the high heat is a big shock to the plants and also it is extremely dry. July and August, while not muggy by East coast standards, are much more humid and the so-called monsoon season usually brings at least some rains. I'm leaving these tomato plants standing in hopes that the tomatoes will continue to ripen.
(Note added a month later - they did ripen, after it cooled down a bit and rained but the plants were dead so no hope of fall tomatoes).
