Eating tomatoes like crazy. Emerald Evergreen and zebra have been the most productive. Wychee yellow has been extremely sweet, and more productive than last year. The cool spring and decent rain has made this an incredible season. Only a handful off of the celebrity.
I plan on doing less cherry tomatoes next year, way more than we can eat and I’d rather have a another bed of peppers.
