First went the tomatoes. I cannot believe how well we did with the tomatoes this year.
|Sad, empty buckets...|
The Super Sweet 100's mini cherry tomato was also a consistent performer - we had these little tomatoes all year long.
My disappointment was the heirloom plant, the Brandywine. The plant itself was gorgeous, deep green, leafy, and about 10 to 12 foot tall. Beautiful plant, but very few tomatoes. I don't think I'll try this one again.
There was a late addition of a Black Prince, a Cherokee and a German Johnson heirloom tomato, and each of them were raised in pots. I got a few tomatoes from each of them, but I think they would have both done much better in one of the tomato towers that my others were in. Oh well, next year!
|Before I turned around, the deer were eating the garden waste...|
I pulled all of the green tomatoes off of the plants before tossing them to the deer. I have a total of 2#4.4 ounces of green tomatoes - I think I'll make this crushed green tomato spread that I found online and saved to one of my Pinterest boards.
|Mostly all green tomatoes!|
