What do you consider adequate sunlight for tomatoes planted on a patio, with North and East exposure. No afternoon sun at all.

Of the two exposures, the eastern one would be better. Tomatoes really need a lot of sun and preferably all day. If your patio receives six hours of sun including the hour of noon, it may be sufficient. The little cherry tomatoes are the most tolerant of less than perfect growing conditions, so you may want to experiment with them if it is less bright than that.
