23 Tomato Plants

No more tomatoes! My new mantra. I keep saying this but found myself yesterday at our local nursery resisting the urge to stick more tomato plants into my cart. I was alone and was enjoying the moment. I fought off the lemon boy and black krim tomatoes successfully from making their way into my cart but the black cherry tomato plant had to come home with me. This summer I definitely want bruschetta with a variety of cherry tomatoes. We have 4 cherry tomato plants now going strong. I've read wonderful things about the black cherry tomato from fellow garden bloggers and apparently they are pretty prolific growers. This makes 23 tomato plants for us this year.  What kind of tomatoes are you growing this year??

I usually over plant too. This year I decided to go completely without cherry tomatoes - they volunteer anyway. I suspect I have several on their way as I type!


Doggies! You are insane for tomatoes. I only have 5 varieties growing this season:
Al Kuffa
Arkansas Traveler
Henderson's Ponderosa Pink
Mule Team

I did want to try some grape type tomatoes; but I think I have plenty. Now I'm getting my canning supplies in order.

@ Dave - I love seeing volunteer tomato plants pop up every year! Hopefully some will appear in your garden this year if they have not already :)
@ Maybelline - I'm obsessed with tomatoes. I figure if we can't eat them all (which we can't) there's plenty to share - which brings me so much pleasure! I really want to plant carbon & mule team some time - have not heard of the rest - time to surf the web and research!
