Tomato Tuesday: Sweeter Tomatoes

My poor tomato plants are turning yellow, and I think they are craving some sun. This has been one of the worst summers I can remember. 

I heard a funny (depressing) statistic this last weekend. It has only been above 80 degrees in Seattle for 72 hours this summer. Ouch. 

Still, I'm not giving up on my tomatoes and am in search for any tips and tricks to keep my tomatoes going strong.

My Grandma is feeling the same way. She mentioned that this year she is going to try a tip she read on how to sweeten up your tomatoes. Usually the sun sweetens your tomatoes, but we can't count on the sun, now can we?

Here is what we are going to try:

As your tomatoes start to ripen, add a tsp. of sugar to the water you are watering your plant with. 1 tsp. per plant. 

Do we sound desperate? Yes, but why not give it a try!
