Tuh-MAY-toh. Tuh-MAH-to.


Plump, ripe and warm from the sun, the moment you bite into it, a juicy explosion of flavors will convince you that nothing beats growing your own tomatoes! Here is a little snapshot of the journey of our "Celebrity" and "Husky Cherry Red" tomato plants this summer. 


We bought our tomato plants from Walmart for $1.50 each {that's how much I spend on ONE tomato at the Teeter}!

  2. I am so jealous! We've had a tomato plant on our patio that is thriving but not really producing much fruit. So ... should I put MiracleGro on it??
