1,2,3 Tomato

On the beach you can’t really have backyard tomatoes so the prospect of volcanic soil and vine-ripened ‘maters had me going. Last year our apartment had a east-facing window so there was sun all day a delicious bunch of tomatoes at the end of the summer. We got mostly cherry tomatoes but tried a few heirloom varieties like Black Krim and Green Zebra too. This one is Yellow Brandywine.


We’ve moved just after the “patio harvest” last year so I’ve been eagerly awaiting the progress of this balcony’s crop. So far only three Green Zebra have come through, but aren’t they lovely!


The plants are heavy with others but they aren’t ripe and I feel November coming on. I’m still watering and hoping for some solar magic through the now steady drizzle and clouds. Otherwise there will be some fried-green-tomato-eating going on in this house for a while cause it turns out you can’t really have shady balcony tomatoes either.
