About

The Tomato Boys are three brothers who have been dabbling in backyard gardening since 2005. They grow all types of heirloom and open pollinated vegetables in their urban San Francisco Bay Area plot, however they specialize in heirloom tomatoes. In the summer of 2008, they were inundated with tomatoes. They grew enough for them to eat their fill and give away to neighbors and friends. But they still had more so they decided to have a tomato stand to sell off the extras. Since then, they have had unlucky tomato years because of cool summers and gardener laziness. But this year, 2012, their goal is to grow enough tomatoes to once again be overwhelmed with them. Follow them as they gear up for the 2012 growing season. Hopefully this year will produce beautiful vegetables and make a little money along the way. Maybe you’ll see them on the sidewalk in front of their house on a sunny, late-summer weekend selling their lucious tomatoes.

    Hi Tomato Boyz! A quick question: how big is your garden? I have a very small yard that is mostly concrete. Do tomatoes grow well in containers? I’ve been thinking of doing something like that for a while now since we don’t have any soil in our yard. I’ll be sure to check back to see how your crop is this year. Thanks!

      Hi Trish, sorry we haven’t responded sooner. Our garden is about 35′ x 25′ but we only have about 100 sq. ft. of bed space. Tomatoes in containers will work, but you’ll have to water them consistently as potted plants dry out faster than plants in the ground. Thanks for reading!
