How not to grow tomatoes.

This is ONE cherry tomato plant. It covers an 8'X8' section of the yard. My MIL planted it and watered it everyday. Big mistake.
As long as she was watering it all it did was produce vines, no flowers. Finally after three months of watering it and no flowers let alone tomatoes she decided to just forget about it. Well that was when it turned white with flowers! Then by the beginning of October it was COVERED in tiny red tomatoes.
Needless to say we had plenty of late season tomatoes.

Oh and that is my handsome, 6' tall, hubby Ronnie picking some of the stragglers.
