This spring I experimented and planted my first-ever cherry tomato plant. A few hours after I put the plant in the ground, we had an unexpected storm with high winds. My poor tomato plant looked ragged and spindly by the end of the day and I didn’t think it was going to survive.
I made a makeshift “greenhouse” for what was left of the plant by tying a clear garbage bag over and around the tomato cage. I left the garbage bag tied around the wire cage for a few weeks and I watered the plant regularly, hoping it would come back. My efforts were well rewarded as I have been blessed with an abundance of delicious cherry tomatoes from my one experimental plant.
Today I harvested most of the tomatoes that were remaining on the plant. I never guessed one plant could result in so many tomatoes! Now to find a recipe so these beauties don’t go to waste. If you have a go-to recipe for red and/or green tomatoes, I’d love to know about it.
