I planted the seeds for my earliest tomato transplants two days ago. The first is that we are still eating home grown tomatoes from the garden. Have never planted next years crop while still eating fresh home grown tomatoes before. Also another first. We had a very mild fall this year, and in late November I noticed lots of volunteer tomato plants growing in a bed. I took four of the plants and transplanted them into small containers. I plant to overwinter them and plant them outside during the spring. So far the plants are only about six inches tall and are growing very slowly in the somewhat cool greenhouse and with the low hours of winter light. I would expect the plants to be loaded with fruit prior to planting time.
I also ordered veggie seeds Sunday and ordered a new supply of tomato seeds from totallytomato.com. Another couple of weeks and I'll be starting a second batch of tomatoes from seed.
