It's Working!

I've picked tomatoes twice since I completed the cage and there are more on the way! It looks like I finished it just in time as suddenly the potted tomato and the cherry tomato plants are completely bare of fruit. It's too bad about the cherries - the couple that I did get were really, really good!
This color difference is real, not just bad digital stuff. The ones on the bottom are Razzleberries, while I think the big one on top is a beefsteak. The cracking on the top tomato is probably thanks to a freak cold snap we had a few weeks ago, right when this guy was starting to ripen. I haven't seen any others like it since.


  1. The Razzleberries aren't quite as red, as you pointed out - do they taste less nice? Or is it just a difference in appearance?

  2. Personally, I think the Razzleberries taste better. They are a little sweeter, pink on the inside and tend to be a little smaller than beefsteak tomatoes. Yummm...
