Fenton Friday: Life is a Bowl of Cherry… Tomatoes

The heat finally broke earlier this week with a tremendous cold front that came through and knocked down sunflowers and other top-heavy flowers.

In the plot, the tomatoes are appreciating the cooler nights and are starting to ripen. Here (below) is a new one we are trialing this year called ‘Red Torch.’ I expected it to be more plum-sized, but it is smaller — more like large-ish cherry. The taste is sweet like a cherry tomato too. It is very pretty and would make a great salad addition, if you can resist eating it right there in the garden.

About Fenton Friday: Every Friday during the growing season, I’ll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house in zone 7 Mid-Atlantic MD/DC border. I’m plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 8th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting “Fenton” into the Search box above.
