Victory Garden Weeks Nine to Fourteen
Posted by eemilla on October 29, 2012
Around week nine (which was early August) we began harvesting the riesentraube tomatoes (cherry), and they were great for caprese salads although their skin seems a bit tough to be my absolute favorite, and they were no where near as delectable as the cherry tomatoes we grew in our shared victory garden. I failed to take a decent photo of a harvested one even though both plants were prolific even after they were neglected for several days.
The stalks of one of the riesentraubes sprouted these weird growth, but it’s productivity seemed unimpaired.
Contrary to my expectations, I loved the brandywines much better. We were finally able to harvest them in early September after weeks of watching them grow. They were so large I expected to find them on the ground each time I went to check on them.
