    My achievement this summer is a tomato, which I have been growing on the windowsill since April. The first fruits began to be collected quickly - at the end of May! Variety – cherry Formula of Love. I liked the name and the fact that it is a low-growing bush

    No one promised, it was not written anywhere that it could be grown on a windowsill, that it would bear fruit, but I took a risk. By the way, the bush has grown more than one meter!
    I sowed it in early April, then planted it, and at the end of the month a quite impressive bush was already sprouting on the windowsill. Of course, there is not enough space - I formed it into one stem. And at the end of May I already picked the first bright red fruits weighing about 10-15 g. They turned out to be very sweet! The skin is dense, and if there were a lot of them, they would quietly lie in their original form for several days. It’s now the end of October, and Formula of Love continues to delight with fruits, although they are already rare. Although I have already stopped shaping and feeding the plant.
    But here's the problem. I planted the same bushes of the Formula of Love in open ground, and the result was terrible. Yes, there were five times more fruit than on the windowsill, but... At the beginning of summer it was hot, then the rains came, strong and infrequent. Overall there was a drought. The fruits did not have time to turn red, the peel burst, and most of them fell to the ground. Complete disappointment. And the taste turned out to be average, not like homemade ones.

    It turns out that the Formula of Love is suitable for indoor conditions and for a greenhouse, but in open ground it is not able to withstand weather disasters. AND
