Are You Ready To Tumble?

Tumbling Tom tomatoes are among several varieties that have been specifically bred for containers. In fact, they are supposed to be ideal for containers of about five gallons in capacity. But every one of the plants that I had this year seemed to want to burst out of their container and find more room. I guess the people who said they were ideal for small containers must have been using the Texas definition of small! Or maybe my seeds were from some mutant strain of this variety that insists on trying to grow as large as their beefsteak cousins. Next year I'll know better and err on the side of large when it comes to containers.
