So all my tomato plants from 2013 are still alive and kicking, as we didn't really have much of a winter here in Los Angeles. I plan to put my 2014 tomatoes into a different part of my garden, so as to avoid diseases.
Should I just take cuttings from my existing plants, sterilize them gently, and start them in water? It seems like I could get a tremendous headstart vs. seeds or waiting for starts at the garden center. It would also motivate me to get up early every morning and get into the garden, since I'll know there's something waiting for me.
Have other folks done this this early in warm climates?
