My Tomato Patch

Looking westward at my main tomato patch, which makes up half of my vegetable garden, on a rare sunny Sunday. The rest of my plants are container-grown on the patio, save the lone "Scotia" tomato up against the house (to the left and outside this picture). I started with inexpensive wire tomato cages hoping to minimize staking, and then had to add the wooden stakes afterwards to stop the cages tumbling over and to take care of the taller vines that need to be tied up.

    it's my dream i love tomatoes but no time to have its in my garden, just the little, in French "tomates cerises" how do you say that in english ?

    We call them "cherry tomatoes", so it is an accurate direct translation! I usually grow several plants and a couple of different varieties. This year I tried a pizza sauce recipe with cherry tomatoes I found on the Internet and it was delicious ... the cherry tomatoes are so sweet you don't have to add sugar.
