Tomatoes, I love tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes deliver the most promise. My problem is which small round delicious orb is the most valuable, the first of the season or the last hanging on the vine? I can hardly wait until that tiny almost ripe sphere of goodness is ready. Often I rush to judgment, plucking the slightly ripe from the vine with all the expectation of the mid season glut. As the days progress, I watch with unbound glee as the vines fill and hang heavy. So many to choose from! I can barely contain myself as I watch them mature from green little balls to full fleshed bursting ripeness. Then, sadly, all that is left are the dark months, in which I must choose next years seed, next years crop. My problem is, which are most valuable? Do I choose the early developing? Do I choose flavor even though my satisfaction will be delayed? Which will hold up over time? How do I decide?

Or, have I simply been out in the sun too long?

Take care my friends

Thom, I like pear tomatoes, their great. The vine ripe are the most expensive in the grocery stores, I think they taste better ripe of the vine. Just add a pinch of salt.

Thom,
stay away from that moonshine you funny guy.
Everyone knows you cannot fly tomatoes,
they wont kit properly.
somebody hand me a drink.LOL.
Plant what you like the most my friend.
I was going to be a chicken farmer at one point in my life but, it didn't work out, I think I planted them too deep,
they never came up.he-he-he.
Take care Thom.
James.

Thom as far as the tomatoes go I have more than 8 verities cherry to 2 lb's ,but it's the phesant I want to give you advice about.Bob White Quail are a lot smaller they come back to a call cage and need lot less room to raise a lot easier for training pointing dogs. Dennis
