Nearly Tomato Time

After challenges with blight and cankers on larger heirloom varieties in previous years, I’ve decided to plant exclusively cherry tomatoes this year.  I planted all varieties of Botanical Interests’ “Cherry Rainbow Blend“–totaling 8 in all, and added in some seeds I’ve saved from previous favorite (and unnamed) cherry tomato varieties.

While I’m seeing some blight on some plants this year (haven’t been super vigilant about pruning back, though to my experience, blight is often inevitable in a community garden setting), it’s not as bad as last year yet.

Last week I ate the first tomatoes (“Golden Drop” I think–) off the vine,  hopefully there will soon be enough that I actually manage to transport some home with me!
