Container Tomatoes

Even though I now have a garden plot, I still like growing in containers ........... there is not a lot of sun in our yard, so should be an interesting comparison with Plot 5 (direct sun all day) re plant size, health and flavour ....... especially the Cheerful F2

from left to right, the dwarfs:  Cheerful F2, Sleeping Lady, Cheerful F2

and a few "regulars", from left to right:  Persimmon x unknown heart, Sunsugar F1 and Durmitor

I'm not totally happy with my soil mix - although I added some leaf mulch I had no compost - the key ingredient for container gardening in my experience.  I would have preferred something with a little more drainage.
