Summer Essence

Tomatoes – the taste of summer

While some fellow garden bloggers report turning over portions of their vegetable beds for cutting gardens, this year I have given up a little space normally used for flowers and dedicated it to tomatoes. I lost track of which plant is which, but I grew one each of:

Husky Cherry Red Tomato -Bonnie, indeterminate
Homestead Heirloom Tomato -determinate
Grape (Tami G) Tomato – indeterminate, 5 to 9 feet tall


The last few times I grew tomatoes I joked they were the most expensive ones I had ever eaten, but these have been tasty and productive. Yum!

There also is a volunteer tomato plant in the meditation circle that is keeping up with its cohorts in every way.

      So I’m not the only one? I’m always hearing how easy it is to grow tomatoes but I’ve not found it so. You may want to try again though–they’re delicious when homegrown.

    Yum! It has been a good year for tomatoes in my garden, too. I’m not sure why–maybe consistent rainfall and warm weather. Plus, our neighbors lost a huge Oak tree, which seems to be letting a little more sun into my west-side garden. Your photos are beautiful, too.
    Enjoy your harvest!
