Lesson Learned: Grape Tomatoes!

The grape tomatoes have been a success! Every day I have a handful, just enough for a snack or salad. The next day I have a little more! They are sweet and a favorite of my grandkids! I planted two grape tomato plants and this has been a perfect amount.

My lesson has been that I did not leave sufficient space around the plants to harvest efficiently. I have had to learn to be a contortionist just to get to the ripe tomatoes and not break off any green tomatoes or the tomato vine, which snaps off easily under pressure.

Next year: plant two grape tomato plants with elbow room!!!

  1. Yeah, I've been there helping the contortionist attempt to pick these -- good tip.
