Great thread Melissa!

Hi Frank...You're looking very trim and fit these days!

harvesting? that seems so far away for me it's almost depressing . . . I am just gearing up to start seeds.

I will be doing that next week at the house in CA. I start ones out there and my children really enjoy them. I never see them because I don't go there in the summer when I can be in the garden in Iowa. They are usually eating big tomatoes by the end of June. I usually start them out there in January but this year it's going to be mid February.

our local news paper had an article on this yeserday. they said some restaurants are paying over 40 dollars for a box of good eating tomatoes and burger king has stopped putting them on their burgers. you now have to ask for them but they don't even tell ou you have to ask. y

More inspiration (as if we needed it) to start tomatoe plants.
Here I start them end of March, or beginning of April to put out early June.
I have a plastic tent ?greenhouse so may be able to put a couple in there earlier.
I can hardly wait! for those fresh homegrown ones which always taste better than
store bought ones.

czroline - wow, that is real early for tomatoes. they must be huge when you finally plant them outside. do they have flowers on them already?? i've been told that if that happens you should remove the flowers befroe planting them outside.

If I kept them under lights they would be big.
Usually, I start under lights and then have them in a sunny window until it warms up.
If they are lanky then I trench them into the outdoor pots. That makes for good sturdy root systems. I remove the lower leaves and bury most of the stem.
Sometimes they flower before it warms up. I usually just let them flower and grow.

usually lanky plants are from the lights being to high up and the plants reaching. Keep lights down low and they will be sturdy and short.
hope it helps
