Answer: Tomatilloes like hot, dry weather and last summer was a bit cool and cloudy in New England. They also need a long growing season. Start them indoors when you start tomatoes, move them outdoors when the weather is warm (June) and give them full sun, water and a shoveful of compost and they should mature by September. Plant a few plants to insure success and keep them warm with row covers and black plastic mulch.
