I grew up working on a produce farm. At 14-years-old, I picked corn, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers blueberries and strawberries all summer long starting at 7 a.m. I practiced irrigation techniques. I planted crops and drove a tractor. It was fun. But we used a lot of pesticides. Personally, I had a high exposure to pesticides and chemicals. Not good. Then I went to college. Got married. Bought a house. Had a few kids. Now I choose to grow organic produce with zero chemicals in my three humongous raised beds. I've learned a ton over the years and bet you have too. The longer you do anything, the more insights you get. This is what I've learned over the 20 years I've been at it.
Cherry tomatoes taste like candy. Don’t they? And who doesn’t love candy? [All hands up in the air- pick me, pick me, pick me].
That’s why I planted 24 cherry tomato plants last year. Overkill, huh? But didn’t I just say they taste like candy and are nutritious. The yield? The average was 3 to 4 pints per plant. Some plants easily produced 5 pints. I love cherry tomato plants because they just keep on producing all summer right into fall.
