I was thinking about planting my (single) big one in the ground. Just to see if it tould make it. It has been outside for the most part for a long time. And no serious problems so far. Maybe I'm just getting to stir crazy.hendi_alex wrote:Had to bring the largest transplants in for the night as temperatures dipped into the upper 30's. Left the smaller plants in the cold frames, hope those will be o.k. The plants go back outside this a.m. Ten day forecast has the lows in the 40's and 50's. Temperature seems to be settling as we move nearer to our late April planting date.
In my part of the world we are still six weeks away from setting plants in the ground. If I did not use the greenhouse it would be mid to late September. We have a real short growing season.gixxerific wrote:Way to go Hydro I'm looking at late April that will be weird. I believe Applestar has had some early April late March toms. I'm sure there are a few others that have already harvested. It's funny thinking about these people at the box stores just now buying their Tom's for exuberant prices.
I can't wait. Funny thing is the super early tomato I was growing is not fruiting while the later ones are.. Hmmmmm?
That's just what my wife just said to me. But just going out there and seeing them in an unperfect state gets me. Look at my neighbors plants behind the fence of the ones on my other thread. They are dark green and have surpassed mine even though they were smaller at the beginning, mine are shriveled and yellow. Right now I don't care about fruit I just want healthy plants.rainbowgardener wrote:Hey gixx, don't let all those southerners get to you! For most of us, it's early yet.

Tomatoes have an amazing way of "teasing"!!! Looks like a full fruit, feels like would ripen any day now, but instead - pant just keep flowering, keeps setting new fruit, and the one you want to be ready - just seats there, and seats there... Until one day - you see a blush!!! They have a mind of their owngixxerific wrote:... Still waiting for a black cherry to ripen it's been going for a month now.
