Two for one.

When the Trust hybrid was approaching the peak of the greenhouse I removed and cloned the top section.

Rooted and planted, the cloned top is already forming buds, and we expect to have some of these wonderful tomatoes to enjoy until late in the season.

In an earlier post I wrote that I intended to plant a seed from this hybrid to see what the F2 generation was like, however, I read a post where someone had tried this and the tomatoes were ugly and tasted awful. I think I am going to pass on that experiment.

When growing tomatoes it seems to be either feast or famine. We can't wait for our first homegrown tomato of the season, and now we have so many that my wife is thinking of making and freezing marina sauce. Go figure.
