Summer Tomatoes 2009

My little city balcony garden has been so much fun this summer. The plants grew twice as big as the ones I had last year, and produced three times as many tomatoes! I have so many right now that I don't know what to do with them. Unfortunately, I think my tomatoes are finally succumbing to the mealy bug problem that has been plaguing our plants lately (it is so hard to get rid of the pests!) so they will have to be retired soon, but they had a great run. I've loved how they turned the view out the living room window into a green tangle of leaves, and there is nothing as sweet as a tomato you grew yourself.
