Over Wintering Tomatoes

Post  floyd1440 on Wed 18 Jun 2014 - 16:25

Last fall my neighbor dumped a lot of tomatoes in my empty compost bin.  I went down to get it ready to fill this weekend and it is FULL of tomatoes!!!!!

Could the seeds have survived the winter and grown?

I know they have a protective gel around them when they grow but how did they ferment and make it?  Maybe I should just plant a tomato in a square in the fall/////////

Yes frequently. 
Congratulations on the volunteers!

Only problem is they seem to all be cherry tomatoes.  I was hoping for a couple of bigger ones.  Sad

Oh well, beggars can't be choosers, if you follow my meaning. One nice thing about the cherries I've grown and seen growing is that overall they're so durable. Anything that happens to them, they seem to "get over it" quickly compared to the bigger sizes.
