Happy Green Thumb Sunday. Your tomatoes look very healthy. Bet you can't wait to taste the first one.

Well done! Look how great they look! I will be cheering for you to get those early tomatoes! I still haven't even started some seeds...I must get going!

I had this happen to my tomatoes last year. I ordered plants from a place and they came a bit early. But I had to get them out quite soon after, transplanting them about a week after they came. But then it was too early and we got some last cold weather in. I cut off the bottom of some green two liter bottles and put them over the tomatoes at night. That seemed to help them. I only lost a few but they turned purple. For awhile I thought I would lose them all but they survived to give me a nice abundance of tomatoes.


Good for you - your tomatoes look very healthy. Last year I ordered tomatoes online - I couldn't find any Sun Gold locally - but ordered them and enjoyed them.

I am so excited that what appears to be spring is here


Great job. It looks like you may have tomatoes by May! My tomatoes are still in their seed packets. I had better get them in some dirt this weekend.

Your post is giving me a craving for a tomato sandwich. Delicious!

I second the tomato sandwich idea!

Thanks for the compliments on the tomato seedlings but the real test is if I can keep them protected when I kick them out into the cold, cruel April weather!

We shall see.

Ohhh... I just noticed my little seedlings in the garage are getting a little purple, and came back here to see again what you did about it. I thought it might stay warm enough in the garage. But, they also need to be potted as I can see some roots. I'll try potting them and then move one to the house to see it is temperature or just needing soil/food.

A posse ad esse

Looks like your well on your way. Have you just begun square foot gardening? I have been doing it for a couple of years, and if I can say one thing about it it's that it is The Way to garden. I assume that you will be trellising these 'maters. That's definitely the way to go.
Good luck. I'll check back for sure!

I had always used raised beds and French Intensive Gardening techniques before I read Square Foot Gardening. Mel explains his Square Foot Gardening so simply and precisely that it IS the way to go.

His new improved book is even better than the original even.
