    Which of these is your favorite Micro Dwarf Tomato to grow?

    I saw both of these varieties on but am unsure which to choose. I've never grown micro dwarf tomatoes before, but I might experiment with a plant on a windowsill. Not sure if I'll even try this, but I'm curious which you all like best.

    Thought id post of my glass gem corn harvest! I wanted to plant corn in my garden for about 7 years and FINALLY got around to it this year. Some of them ended up as sweet corn hybrids so instead of saving those I just cooked and ate them after harvest, pretty good meal I'd say! I harvested...
