cherry-tomatoes-13944_staatsWe have a very small garden plot in our backyard – nothing special but some very fertile soil.  And we are now reaping the benefits of that with a plethora of cherry tomatoes.  Our plants took a beating in early summer when we had a big wind storm move through.  The vines were up and above the tomato cages when the storm blew through the back yard, causing the cages and vines to topple over.  With some stakes and twine we up righted them, although the vines were all entangled.  But that didn’t harm our harvest a bit.  It’s a pleasure to go out to the garden in the early morning and rummage through the vines and pick the ripe tomatoes, and even better to choose a few to go straight from the vine to my mouth.  They pop open with juiciness and the wonderful flavor of summer!
