TOO MANY CHERRY TOMATOES!

caiatransplant | Aug 25, 201312:47 PM     66

Hi all. I don't know what I was thinking, but I put in 4 cherry tomato plants (1 Sun Gold; 1 Sweet 100s; 1 Yellow Pear; and I can't recall the other) and they did what they were supposed to. Combined with the other full sized tomatoes, they have taken over my veggie patch.

Any idea what to do with barrels of cherry tomatoes??? They're yummy and everything, but after awhile, and with only 2 of us here, I'm inclined to cheer them on while I hide elsewhere. That's wasteful, however.

My big tomatoes (Beefsteak; Mortgage Lifter; Early Girl and one other [can't recall that one, either]) will be canned for winter and some made into marinara sauce. But what to do with all those cherries????

Any help (using LOTS of them) would be appreciated.

Thanx, PAT
