Wow! I didn't realize how much they grew, until I compared with last month's photo's.....
The foliage is not healthy on this tomato, but the fruit is delicious. This was the first tomato to ripen this summer.

I had such great success last year, experimenting with growing tomatoes in containers, I can't wait to see how prolific they are this year. I watered them at least once a day, sometimes twice, gave them a foliar feeding at 50% rate once per week, and a side dressing once per month.

I grew these two varieties last summer for the first time and loved them. They did great in my yard. Started producing very early and stopped producing very late; prolific and very delicious. I saved the seed, choosing one of the earliest and best specimens. I tagged it, and let it stay on the vine until way over-ripe. I then squeezed the tomato into a cup...........seeds, flesh, skin and all, to ferment for a few days. Then i rinsed well and dried.
