Oh, the tomato. You know, Philly’s not so far from Jersey — you’d think I could grow a decent tomato. I have, but only rarely. I’m convinced it was a fluke. In the coming weeks you’ll see plenty of posts detailing my obsession with the wicked fruit. Here’s proof that the lovely Isis Candy is, for now, healthy. Enjoy it while it lasts.
This year, rather than attempting full-size fruits (for a bevy of reasons that I’m sure I’ll moan about later), I’m focusing on a variety of cherry tomatoes including a yellow Tumbling Tom, Chocolate Cherry, Gold Nugget, and the lovely Isis. Although I generally try to buy my seeds locally I found a nice selection at Territorial Seeds.
Does anyone have any tomato-rearing suggestions for me?
