Touring The Tremendous Tomato Tree

I may never see a plant like this again so on August 16th I made this video tour of my cherry tomatoes. Keep in mind that I did not plant this, I didn’t feed it, it just appeared in my garden – and it’s ONE plant!  It’s grown to about 25 feet long and 20 feet wide, vining in every direction. I had been picking tomatoes for seven weeks and in this video I picked 151 tomatoes! (it took 15 minutes so we sped up the video – even I don’t want to watch 15 minutes of tomato-picking!) That’s 151 tomatoes in one day! That brought the total to 2,352 tomatoes but since then, I’ve picked over 1,000 more – you can follow the daily tomato count in the “Tomato Progress” posting above. I still can’t believe it! How many more will come? There may be another contest yet…

    Just some info for you Jenny about your out of control tomato plant. Maybe you can manage it better after watching this video 🙂

    That is the most fantastic video! The real never-ending story. When I was there visiting, we predicted, wow, maybe 2000 before the season is done. But I don’t think this season is ever going to be done. You MUST move it here to Canada and let the frost have it. It the only way to save the planet from the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!!

    Jenny, that plant should be in the guinness book, seriously. I think once your temps start to come down in California maybe your plant will start to chill out a bit…lol…at least you can enjoy picking and eating them and yeah those are way too big to be normal cherry tomatoes, but quiet delicious I’m sure 😉
    Take care everyone 🙂
