This is planted in one of those garden tote things on wheels, in case I decide to take it to the camper.It has one Speckled Roman Roma (in back), three Sweet'n Neat Scarlet tomatoes (in front), Homestead Purple Verbena, Crimson w/eye Verbena, Boxwood Basil, and a Lilac colored periwinkle.
I found them on sale and think this size is perfect for this pot.
(they also had a Tumbling Tom but I think this upright mini tomato plant will work better for me)
They USED to have really bright colored totes.
Also yellow squashes...
See the little green sticks near the edge?
I accidentally broke off my Old German and Mortgage Lifter Tomato plants and, because they have such great root systems, I hope they recover...
But I'm rooting the tops as back up.
I didn't want lots of one type of tomato plants, I wanted less but special heirloom tomatoes.
I went to the plant store after 4 tomato plants: 1 beefstake, 1 roma, 1 red cherry, 1 yellow pear cherry tomatoes.
I came home with 13 tomato plants: 4 beefstakes, 1 roma, and 4 cherry tomatoes, 4 Sweet'n Neat mini cherry tomatoes.
(and I had to really narrow it down:)
Even tho our Spring season seems to be running late,
most people in our area are already harvesting tomatoes, we start early here in East Texas.
Except for the Yellow Pear Cherry tomato, we haven't tried these types and we are really excited.
