The Tomatoes Are In!

We wait awhile to plant them per the advice of Melinda Myers in Month-By-Month Gardening in Nebraska, a straight-forward book that I have found very helpful.

She says transplant shock is less if they are smaller, so we also wait awhile to get them started.  We planted 6 plants for regular tomatoes, plus two pots of cherry tomatoes, so we'll see how this goes.  I still haven't used the canning jars I bought two years ago, but hopefully this year is the one!

  1. Yay! I hope to get some tomatoes planted soon too. I'll be going the "bought plants" route though. I'm not having much success with planting seeds, though I'll keep trying.
