Your garden has don't know light - a full sun position will ensure your plant thrives.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8b) is within the ideal range for Tomato. The recommended range is between Zone 3 and 14.

hows its flavor? :)

I’ll get back to you on that; the first one disappeared, and the two I got today need a little more ripening. (I have to take tomatoes off right when they show some red and let them finish ripening on the windowsill or the birds get them.) I’ll try them in a few days and take some pictures too!

any word for me on its flavor now?
BTW- congrats on keeping it alive thru the scorching Summer heat! :)

I guess I’m not much of a tomato connoisseur, because they all just taste like tomatoes to me. But they do taste good! :) I think the color is my favorite part. They are definitely pink!

The tomatoes are actually not doing too badly; today is our 51st day above 100 degrees (our average is 12 days), and they’re not totally fried. Other plants didn’t make it, and the tomatoes are not producing much at all, but if I can just keep them alive until it cools down, I’ll be happy.
