Loads of homegrown tomatoes

24 Jun IMG_8083

all shapes and sizes! I cheated this year and bought a couple mixed toms six pack seedlings from Home Depot. Here they are all grown up!!

Since I’m low carbing right now, I will have to limit myself and my lucky neighbours will win out!
   
 

Last years plants that survived mild San Diego winter.

The rainbow peppers and cherry peppers are coming on three years old! But they don’t look as healthy as the second year plants. Some of these eggplants I only just noticed as I was snapping ­čÖé

Small but colourful September harvest

2 Oct

The onions have been curing for a while, I just couldn’t decided what to do with them so finally putting them in the fridge.

Besides onions, there are some cherry bell peppers from a plant that survived from last year, some jalape├▒o chili peppers, tomatoes, lemons and tiny eggplants I decided to harvest early.

Tiny Tim Tomato would do well in hanging basket

Still alive! Barely

These are still producing tomatoes although I did notice they are ripening at a smaller size. They used to be regular cherry tomato size but now some of them are as small as peas!

And they make a great hanging plant but my neighbors might not appreciated them taking over the benches…

One of the pots on by my apartment door was knocked over and he really doesn’t look too healthy but still producing tomatoes.

Definitely worth growing these… Maybe next year I will stagger the planting a bit more as I got a large harvest early in the season. I have three pots of Tiny Tims. Each pot is about 7-8 inches across and has 3-6 plants in it and they all seem to be doing well. I have one stray tiny Tim plant cohabiting with a 5 gallon pot of artichoke and that one isn’t any bigger or heavier producing. So it appears it does about the same where ever it is planted. Go plant some! Now I am curious as to how they’re going to so over a San Diego ‘winter’.

Tomatoes growing in small pots

I love Tiny Tim tomatoes. They’re so easy to grow and quite productive from such a small pot!
