The Early Bird Gets the Tomato


I had some tomatoes for Bow Little Market on Thursday. They sold out quickly. The only ones who got any were the early birds.

This year I’m severely pruning the tomatoes as they grow, limiting each tomato to a single main stem. I’m also removing half of the flowers to limit the number of tomatoes which develop. It’s working. The tomato plants are very manageable, and the resulting tomatoes are nice and plump, up to a pound each. A few more weeks and I’ll have a full basket of tomatoes for the market each Thursday.
