I love tomatoes but usually don't grow very many because I hadn't planned on freezing or canning them. This year I ended up with extra plants and I'm glad that I did because the weather has been crazy and they never did grow as large as usual.

I had to squeeze the tomatoes in wherever I could find room. I'm growing 3 different varieties this year but only have one or two plants of each.

Three of them are in a raised planter box and the others are in pots. 3 of those ride up and down the driveway in the wagon to catch the sun and 2 stay in place on the sunny end of the garden. It's going to be a great way to see which places and methods work better than others.

Many of them already have blossoms or small tomatoes on them so I'm hoping for good results.

For me a garden is a learning place as well as a growing one.

I'm pleased with the results so far and when everything gets ripe I plan to wheel the potted ones to the end of the driveway and sell them where people can pick their own off the plants which should be both fun and satisfying for the people who can't grow gardens of their own.
