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!

Tiny Tim Tomatoes blushing

July 2011. Tiny Tim Tomatoes chillin' on my door step. Growing quite happily in small pots.

 

They’re all starting to blush!

Not as small as I expected, I read they could be as small as peas. There are regular cherry tomato sized. The leaves are definitely dwarf variety but fruit are big. Looks great in pot. Requires a bit of grooming to remove lower yellow leaves once in a while. Pinching the tops will keep plant shorter.

Tiny Tim Tomatoes. They tasted fruity and soft inside. Pretty juicy too! Tomatoes are surprisingly regular cherry tomato sized...I did buy my seeds from ebay..maybe they're not true Tiny Tims?

Tiny Tim’s tiny tomatoes.

23 May

They’re so dinky right now! So cute ­čÖé wonder how big they will get. The plant is getting bigger. I removed some of the lower leaves as it was starting to brown. I am thinking about pinching the top off to keep the plant round and short but I always find it hard to bring myself to do that.

Tiny Tim Tomatoes - Tiny Flowers. May 2011

Look at these cute little flowers! I can’t imagine how tiny the tomatoes are going to be! Pea sized?! Or petite pois sized? We will see!

I thought there were three plants in the 7.5″ pot but there looks like there are actually four. Tight squeeze for the Tims!

The smaller 6″ pot only has one plant.
