Check out the latest tomato variety we grew for the first time this year – ‘Red Robin’.
I transplanted the seedlings into 6-inch (15 cm) pots for the front porch. The plants grew taller than what all references claimed, so I provided a bamboo stake for each of them. Production was good, in spite of the unprecedented three heat waves we suffered through the summer months. The fruits are bite-sized and juicy, so be sure to pop the whole tomato in your mouth before biting into it.
You will find the details about this lovely tomato variety listed in Fruit & Vegetable Garden under In the Garden on the menu bar. Or click on the link here.

We sometimes will lose a plant…even when we have done our due diligence and researched the needs of the plant. Unfortunately, things happen. Perhaps you gave the plant too much full sun, or you planted it in a “cool pocket” in your garden, or you did not test the soil pH.
Say a prayer for your plant and try to figure out how your plant died so you do not make the same mistake again. Then try again.
There is a saying: “Class is always in session in a garden.” Decades later, I am still learning new things about gardening.
