Last summer, a $12 cherry tomato plant turned out to be a terrific purchase.
It paid for itself a hundredfold.
It grew in a pot on the back porch.
When the small green tomatoes first appeared, it was a call for celebration.
They ripened, turned into red nuggets and created bursts of sweetness in one's mouth.
Visits from kids were particularly enjoyable.
They couldn't wait to go out onto the back porch to pick and eat the mini cherry tomatoes!
While I didn't count them, that little plant produced dozens upon dozens of tomatoes, right into fall.
So this year, a few pots sit on the back porch with cherry tomato plants growing in them.
Already we have had several yummy mini tomatoes and there are signs of many more to come.
HAVE YOU EVER GROWN CHERRY OR ANY OTHER KIND OF TOMATOES?
