My friend gave me a Brandywine Heritage Tomato plant today. The tomato is said to have been developed by the Amish. It is low yielding and a late variety. Oh well. I put it in a pot on the deck and we'll see what happens. I'll get something else for another pot and perhaps I'll have some late tomatoes too.

Cherry tomato plants do well in large 12" diameter pots in warm weather in the sun protected from the wind and watered well.

Infact, in summer water potted vegies every day.

Most of all, have fun - pinch off leaves of lettuce and herbs as a treat when watering. Roll the herbs in a lettuce leaf to eat.


I'm taking notes Susan. Thanks.

I went to a meeting today and on my way home stopped at the garden shop - I picked up Better Boy tomatoes, chocolate mint, parsley, and strawberries. I need to pick up some more potting soil so I can finish the strawberries and a couple of planters for the tomatoes. I will try two of them in the yard and try to protect them and two on the deck.

Today on my lunch hour I picked up some Miracle Gro garden soil and came home and planted two of the tomato plants I purchased yesterday. I noticed that my hibiscus scorched in the heat yesterday. I was trying to figure out what to do with the strawberry plants. I was going to put them in the jar but I'm not sure now.
