    In the fall, I planted a few black cherry tomato seeds that a friend gave me although only 1 germinated and grew. I live in the south and we have had a very mild winter. The tomato vined all over the place although no tomatoes ripened. I just left it in the ground and recently I trimmed off the little bit of cold damage. Today I am going to give them a shot of fertilizer and hope for the best. There are flowers and some green tomatoes with  few starting to color. Wow, an overwintered tomato. A first for me.

    Cherry tomatoes always seem to be particularly hardy. Even in the heat and humidity of the summer, my cherry tomatoes have always outlasted the larger varieties.

    I spoke too soon. Two nights of temperatures in the low 30’s and my beautiful tomato vine withered and is now compost. Oh well. I have new transplants that are about 4 inches tall and will be ready to go in the ground next month!
