Wednesday Vignette, who needs boxwood?

Who needs boxwood or any of the other "standard" hedging plants? Tomatoes...now that's the best hedge of all. At least in the summertime...

I should have gotten a close up of the mouth-wateringly ripe fruit, there was plenty of it.

  1. Much better than a "normal" hedge! My tomatoes are still getting started, after a very late planting. We had the first few cherry tomatoes a couple weeks ago and the first 'Early Girl' just a few days ago.

    1. All I planted this year were a pair of 'Sungold'...last years plant was so prolific I figured we'd be set. Not so, they've struggled.

  2. I've seen a corn hedge before. Probably a bit more attractive than tomatoes, but just barely?

    1. The folks who lived next to our rental house (first year in Portland) had a corn hedge. Andrew thought it quite hilarious, being from Nebraska and all...

  3. In case the tomatoes in the veggie garden fail, they've hedged their bet with these.

  4. Cool! I'm thinking blueberries might make a nice hedge, too. I'd be constantly "trimming" it.

  5. I love it! Great use of space....I wonder if they get many tomoatoes for themselves or if people walking by enjoy them. I love that people are being creative and thinking outside the "box", lol!

  6. Oh my...just realized they could under plant them with bulbs like daffodils for early spring!

  7. Out here, the deer have taken a sudden liking to tomatoes. R just brought in a batch with teeth marks in them...well, maybe they don't like them well enough to finish them off.

  8. I wonder how long my neighbors would behave themselves walking by a hedge like that day after day?

    1. People who used to live across the street from us had two huge cherry-size tomatoes out front by the sidewalk. Most people were respectful but there was this one old guy who helped himself to a handful, every single day, as he walked his dog.
