Arlene, thanks.I might start cosmos seeds. No greenhouse here but late April on the deck with a plastic cover might work.

Most of our tomatoes are at the farm but last year we built some raised beds at our house. I didn't want to use my precious space for tomatoes so I put an Earth Box at the end of two of the beds and put two tomatoes in each one. It worked out great. It's much easier to keep them watered too and because you water the planter, not the plant, less likely to get diseases.
