So earlier this week, I went outside to pick a few more ripe tomatoes. We seemed to have wound up with less than I expected, but the results were still delicious. I’ve decided on trying a few tomato varieties next year. I’ve actually been a little sad though, that the season is almost over and almost all my harvest had been, well, harvested. This has showed by the lack of weeding I’ve accomplished lately, as I kind of stopped caring as it seemed impossible that a few small weeds would affect my almost-done plants.
And then, I saw something. I think I’d mentioned that my cherry tomato plant had grown tall and strong lately, despite the fact that all the blossoms seem to have been clipped off– eaten, I assume, before they could produce fruit. The picture above is what caught my eye– I have baby cherry toms!!
That said, I also noticed, yesterday, that one of the large branches I thought was the cherry tomato plant– is actually the regular tomato plant. It’s still looking strong, growing, and flowering. Might I have more tomatoes coming afterall?
But with this in mind, I’m a little more concerned about Hurricane Irene this weekend….
