Black Cherry tomatoes. This year we caged some of our tomatoes, but a few we left untethered to grow undisturbed, vine-like on the ground. Oftentimes the same plants that grow elsewhere need to be allowed to grow in a bit of a different way than they would in more temperate climes. By letting the tomato vines snake along the ground, the normally exposed stems are shaded and protected, and so long after the other tomatoes have succumbed to the heat, these low-lying plants will continue to flourish and produce fruit.
