City Picker Update: Tiny Green Tomatoes

Early Green Tomatoes

As the pumpkin vines continue to populate the vegetable patch, I was once again grateful for the City Picker boxes.  I simply rolled the entire planter box of tomatoes to another sunny spot, and let the pumpkin vines continue to grow.  (As if I would stop them!!!)

Unfortunately, one of the two boxes leaks when I fill the watering tube.  I can’t do anything about it now, but I’ll investigate at the end of the planting season to see what’s up.  I planted three starter tomato plants on one side and a variety of seeds on the other.   Eventually, I thinned the plants to an even six to the box.

Here’s how they’re growing:

Help! There’s a pumpkin vine chasing me!!!

    • I love eating the small ones right off the vine when they are still warm. We eat them in green salads, and also dice them for enchiladas. My dream is to have the tomatoes ripen while we still have basil, and make a Caprese salad (slices of mozzarella cheese, basil and tomatoes with Balsamic vinegar and a little salt and pepper.
