sweet million

The tomatoes are exploding in the garden, and the anticipation of the first ripe red bite is killing me. While I was watering today I counted over 170 green tomatoes – and there are hundreds more flowers! Granted, most of those are on our Sweet Million plants, so the fruit won’t get over 2 inches, but that is just perfect for the kids to eat right off the vine. Over the past 2 summers, I don’t think a single cherry tomato has made it inside the house – Fletcher eats them as quickly as they ripen!

We are also growing Cherokee Purple heirlooms and those plants, while much smaller than our 6 foot tall Sweet Million and Better Boys, are covered in flowers as well!

Bring it on, summer. Bring. It. On.
