Patio Tomatoes

Living in Ocean Grove, our property is very small and garden space is minimal, but every year for the past 10 years we have planted large pots with tomato plants and put them on our second floor porch. The plants get a lot of sun there, but we have to be careful not to plant them on the porch too early because it can be quite windy in the Spring. We buy the plants from the Ocean Grove Florist in our town and they are already flowering and it seems like in no time we have little green tomatoes showing. We love it because we can just go up to the porch and pick what we need.


Note: Do not store your tomatoes in the refrigerator. They should be kept under 55F or they lose the enzyme that makes the flavor. Tomatoes should also be stored stem side up.

We also grow herbs, but we grow them in pots outside our kitchen door, so they are easily accessible for cooking.
