pops6927 pops6927 , those tomato guides are they upside down? If they are not, I’ve been using them wrong for 20 years haha.

Not to my knowledge, they are placed correctly in the soil. We did try ro grow 2 plants but one did not surviv but we did not disturb it and just left it alone!

Well, I wrote to The Tasteful Garden website about my stunted cherry tomatoes, and they sent me a gift certificate for all that I paid for the original two plants! They are a little bigger than pea sized, not 1" size. I think it is due to the summer heat as they didn't ship them out until June 9th, not April 5th like they had said due to Covid. Just in time to order them for the fall growing season!

We grew Gold Nugget cherries this year, along with Celebrity and Black Trifele. They all did well, but the Gold Nugget were extremely productive. I've been harvesting a pint every day for the last month - probably 1000-1500 tomatoes and it's still going pretty strong. Here's what it looked like on July 21st when the fruit was just starting to ripen.
