Has anybody ever grown "Tumbling Tom" tomatoes? They're a bush type, cherry tomato. Great for containers. That's just one of the strains I grow on my homestead.

I grow beefsteaks as well. Also Early Girls, Ox Hearts, Yellow Pear, Canadian Stuffers, Romas, etc. I have the Tumbling Toms planted near the front door. Everybody treats it like a candy dish!

Wow, I never even heard of any of those. Are these considered 'heritage' plants?

The ox hearts are my favorite of all the heirlooms. Dense pink flesh and minimal seeds. The largest one I've ever grown was 4 lbs.! Some are heirlooms, some are hybrids. I try different ones every year. If they produce well, I keep them on the schedule, if not, I move on to another strain.

Ok I meant to say heirloom, not heritage. I hope to have a little garden, but not this year.
You sound like an expert at this stuff. There is another person on here (LynnB) who also has an awesome garden… but she has not posted in a couple of months.

I knew what you meant! We homestead here, so if I don't grow our produce, we don't eat!!! Most bush type tomatoes, and even the "indeterminate" (vining) plants can be planted in pots if space is an issue. Peppers do particularly well in pots as well, and there are new strains of bush-type cukes that are perfect for container culture. When we lived in Bpt., my mom always had a huge garden, even though we had a postage stamp size yard. So I guess I just grew up knowing gardening. When we moved north, it was just the way things were done, out of necessity and convenience. I've studied Horticulture, Forestry and Wildlife Conservation, and other related subjects and hold degrees in those fields. I guess I've become a product of my environment! In a good way!!!
