There are about 25 green Cherry Tomatoes still on the plant, but after picking the 1,000th one yesterday, I am not sure if the remaining ones will ripen. Nevertheless, I am sharing this information to inspire others to also grow whatever they deem possible. A yard, terrace, window shelf and applicable roof, will all suffice to various degrees.
For me the following actions have brought me to 1,000 Cherry Tomatoes from one plant:
- A greenhouse
- A rope trestle (The plant grew 7 feet tall and then curve back downward 7 feet)
- A soaker gardenhose with timer
- Pruning and pruning and pruning
- Natural homemade spray for bugs
- Marigolds for insects
- More Compost
We enjoyed the 1,000 Cherry tomatoes by making:
and just eating them as a snack!
Also we loved sharing them with friends and family who stopped by for a visit.
