Taxy and Dawg, they're Patio tomatoes. They're an actual variety, not just a method of planting. I have a pretty big back yard, but little planting space since it's mostly lawn and trees, so several years ago I gave up trying to grow them inground in what little available space I had and tried the Patios. I've had really good luck with them!

Patio Tomato Gardening Tips

They don't get much higher than about 2'. I have them planted in clay pots 14" wide by a foot deep and that seems perfect for them. "They" say they're determinate and all ripen at once, but I've never found that to be the case. I get 'maters for at least 4 months or so at different times. They average about the size of a Roma, maybe a little smaller. Perfect for one person. Here's a couple of pics from last year. Some of the containers were a little smaller but they didn't seem to care. I went bigger this year.

We are back from Akumal, so it's time for a photo or 2. This is El Hombre Orquesta Abel, who walks the beach at the resort playing his homemade instrument(s). He was really quite good, a really nice guy and fun to talk with. He made the contraption himself. Quite the unique sound. We were serenaded by him several times during the week.

Those super coordinated musicians fascinate me Rick! I can't walk and chew gum at the same time. Great pictures but too bad you didn't record him.

We saw a guy on Cozumel with a similar setup. Amazing!

There was a man at the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup that had a similar rig and his most requested song was, "It's A Small World Afterall" I have to admit, he did a bang up job with that song. He would have kids dancing around him. And if not around him, then like the Pied Piper, following him in dance. A true troubordor.

I saw him at the spring fair last year. That shuffle does was weirding me out. He does a good job, for sure.
