Wonderful Molly! I grew toms in containers, in the greenhouse, one year, but never again! They took over the greenhouse completely.

I have also grown tomatoes in containers when I ran out of room in the raised bed. They did very well - just as well as those in the raised beds. I did give them lots of extra water, so that may have helped.

I've been picking the odd cherry tomato, Isis Candy, from seeds originally given to me by Donna. They're a nice snacking tomato when I'm working in the garden.

Today I picked my first large tomato. I've grown several varieties of yellow over the years, but had never really found one that we liked; they were too bland for our taste. However, a few years ago I did come across another one, Gold Dust, and I've been growing this one every year. It's a beautiful yellow; full of flavour, firm, and lovely in salads.

Here it is, (large egg for size comparison!):

Whoa, Molly! You are doing something right…your tomatoes look so healthy!


I'm growing your Gold Dust tomatoes this year and I agree, they are a nice flavourful tomato. I have several different varieties this year…the Kumato has been really impressive so far. My neighbour is away at the cabin a lot this summer and she told me to help myself to the tomatoes in her yard. They are growing like gangbusters and the plants are so vigorous and prolific…too bad they don't have a lot of flavour. :?
