Cherry tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes!

Life imitates…candy! Picking cherry tomatoes may take forever, but it’s totally worthwhile for both looks and taste. This is newer tiny farm thinking for me. In my concern for quantity, having enough every week for market and CSA shares, I tended to favor things that grew BIGGER. Kinda primitive-practical (and I’m still biased against baby veggies, like tiny scallopini squash—just give ’em a couple more days, no?! :). Only last year, I finally expanded the cherry selection from a couple of standard round, red varieties to a fair mix of heirlooms and modern hybrids. Today’s assortment includes Golden Cherry, Red and Yellow Pear, Ildi, Red Currant, Chadwick’s Cherry, Matt’s Wild Cherry, and Sweet Baby Girl. There’s supposed to be Green Grape in there, maybe they were passed over because they didn’t look ready to pick!



  1. Beautiful tomatoes and I am loving your blog!

    Quick question – you mentioned scallopini squash. I just posted a blog entry about a squash that I’m growing that I don’t know what it is because the garden center messed up the tags. Someone commented that it might be a scallopini. If you have time, could you please swing by my blog and see if you think it is scallopini? I would really appreciate it.

    Keep up the great blogging! You are making me want to buy a new place where I can have a bigger garden for market. Although I don’t know if I could work as hard as you do!

  2. That’s a brilliant photo! You could make that into gift wrap and sell it at gardening shops!

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
