Growing Yellow Cherry Tomatoes In My Garden

I was in the supermarket and I saw some yellow cherry tomatoes on the shelves. They look fresh and I bought a packet. I ate some of the tomatoes and left some behind and kept them in the fridge. I have totally forgotten about the tomatoes.
 When I found these tomatoes, they were all wrinkled. So instead of throwing them away, I decided to grow some tomato plants. These yellow cherry tomatoes are different from the grape tomatoes that I have grown earlier and which I have posted here if you wish to read about. These are bigger than the grape tomatoes.
 I chose 2 of the biggest and healthiest plants to grow in this pot. But due to the hot and dry weather, the tomato plants were not doing well.
 They look rather undernourished possibly due to insufficient fertilizer. It was hot and I was not spending much time in the garden. It did bear a few fruits.
 It didn't bear as much fruits as my previous tomato plants.  
Just waiting for these tomatoes to ripen before plucking them off the plant.
 These are some of the fruits I harvested.
 The tomato plants were later infested with the mealy bugs and it was too late to save the plants. I quickly got rid of the tomatoes plants before the bugs spread to the surrounding plants.

  5. Your flowers are so interesting and different from ours. The first and pale blue look very pretty, and the last purple one resembles Verbena bonariensis...
    Anyway - have a lovely day Nancy!

  9. I have a few tomato plants in my garden too. They grew from the compost. The only thing I find inconvenient is that the plant is floppy and needs support.

    1. Yes, they need support to hold up their branches.
