Earlier this summer I planted a variety of tomatoes both at the Garden Home Retreat and in the small vegetable garden at my house. Now the work is paying off with an abundance of juicy tomatoes. I planted slicing, paste and cherry tomatoes so that I’d have a one to suit every meal.
To make the most of the limited space at home I planted patio and determinate tomatoes, but out at the Garden Home Retreat I was able to grow some of the larger, indeterminate varieties.
Good to Know
Determinate tomatoes plants max out at a specified size. They tend to be compact growers, but only produce one crop of tomatoes.
Indeterminate tomato plants will sprawl, but produce continuous waves of tomatoes throughout the growing season.
