My container Stupice is growing like CRAZY. Its so easy to grow and produces so many tomatoes its great! And as you can see, I am growing it in a reasonably small pot. But it keeps on producing! I started these from seed back in January as its cold tolerant but it seems to be my most reliable tomato right now.Earlier in the season, I would only get a small handful of tiny cherry sized tomatoes but they’re growing bigger and pumper now.
I also noticed it better to pick them when they are slightly green as once they’re red, they get a bit mushy. So along with my tomatoes, I also plucked an onion. I planted my onion sets in January which was a loooooong time ago and have been waiting patiently for the leaves to brown and “fall over” but it just hasn’t happened, so I’m just going to harvest as and when I need them as I am concerned I’m going to end up with 50 onions in late summer or fall…how will I ever eat them all!
I bought a pint of mixed onion sets and I noticed that some onions all started to product a flower stalk. Bummer, I believe they’re not supposed to flower…BUT luckily it just seems to be the red onions that are flowering. They still produce a small sized bulb and the tops can be used as green onions so definitely no waste here.
It was very exciting eating a dinner made from mostly home grown stuff. Even my husband was impressed 🙂 Homegrown onions, garlic and tomato make a perfect sauce! Yum!
