|Where's that smoke coming from?|
So, technically, the Cherokee Purple was tied with the Berkeley Tie Dye tomato for the win, but since I'm the All Powerful Oz around here (remember...) I went with the Berkeley Tie Dye because, well, obviously.
Also, if I put in both plants I might lose the dog in the overgrowth.
|Right in the line of fire, there.|
Because I don't prune my tomato plants like everyone else in creation. I'm actually starting to feel a little weird about the fact that I don't prune my tomatoes since everyEFFINGone does this.
Do YOU prune your tomatoes? Does it help with yields? Are you able to grow more plants and get the same yields in the same small space?
These are things I need to know, people, if I'm going to ever entertain the idea of pruning my tomatoes.
For now though, no pruning.
I expect 50 lbs of tomatoes per plant and I have The Fear of ruining those yields with flights of fancy called Pruning.
So, yeah, unless you can convince me otherwise, I Shalt Not Prune.
I SHALL, however, rip shit out of my landscaping to make room for just the one tomato because why the hell not, right?
|Also, this looks better than before anyway.|
So, yeah, gigantic overgrown rosemary bush OUT, hippie tomato IN and the dog takes naps - not bad for an Adopt a Crop update.
Then, maybe later this season this plant will do something productive and I'll be able to provide one of you lucky freaks with a weird little something produced from this weird little plant.
Would you like that weirdness?
