Garden note to self

Cherokee Purple Tomatoes need WAY more horizontal space than the Black Plums.  Completely different cage structure needed if I decide to grow them next year.


  1. Ping from Mrs. S.:

    Good luck with the Cherokee Purple tomatoes. I tried them one year. You have to watch them like a hawk. One day they’re ripe, and the next day they are a pool of rotten tomatoes. When you pick them, use them A.S.A.P, because they just do not keep after being picked. They taste good, but if you have a busy schedule, they’re a nightmare.
