Tomato Update

I am happy to report that all 5 of my tomato plants (not counting the ones that sprang up by themselves from last year’s crop) have tomatoes! 3 of the 5 are pictured here (the ones not pictured are the TX Wild Tomato and the Black Cherry Tomato):

    Yeah for tomatoes and Austin’s early and long growing season. I have 12 plants started and growing (of 3 different heirloom varieties: one a big golden, reddish, meaty type; one small yellow cherry types and one green, striped sausage type!). It’d be great to be in the house by summer in order to plant them.

    That said, I’m just curious how your container tomatoes have fared in the past. How big is the diameter of your masetas? Have you found container tomatoes to actually produce a decent amount of fruit?

  2. You know, I can’t remember how many tomatoes my potted tomatoes produced 2 years ago, but I know they did produce. One reason I planted tomatoes in pots this year is because I always seem to have some sort of fungus (in the ground) that ruins a lot of them, so I thought I would plant some in pots and some in the ground.

    As far as the size–I don’t know. About a foot across but don’t know the volume. Let’s just say they are pretty heavy. I think the bigger you can accommodate, the better.
