Tomatoes in the ground

Finally finished up with planting all my tomatoes for the season. I've been working on this for two weeks and had to cover the ones I put into the ground probably prematurely two weeks ago several times. I'm hoping that any chance of hard freeze is gone at this point and I don't have to worry about it from here on out.

Varieties:
Hybrids:
Better Boy
Big Boy
Early Girl
Lemon Boy
DX-52-12
La Roma II
Viva Italia
Sweet Tangerine
Moscow

Heirlooms:
Mortgage Lifter
Black
Pink Brandywine
Red Brandywine
Brandywine
Big Rainbow
White Wonder
Amish
Black Krim
Green Zebra
Fourth of July
Rutgers
Mr. Stripey
Yellow Pear
Taxi
Chocolate Cherry
Rose Quartz

Peppers also went in with Bells in Purple, Yellow, Red, Orange and Green, along with Thai, Jalapeno, Cayenne, Habanero, Anaheim and Serrano.

OK... got some seedlings in the ground (Mar 22). Last year I only planted heirlooms, this time I planted some Better Boys & Big Beefs. Not because I know anything about them, but because their seedlings were only a buck & I was impatient to plant something. What can I expect out of them in a Mediterranean climate with only 6-7 hrs of sun?

(Also sticking a Pink Brandywine & a Margold in the dirt today).

I'm gonna let it get just a lil warmer, but i cant wait to get'em going. I've been pouring all of the water from my turtle & fish tank water changes in the same spot all winter long.

That ground is gonna be sooo fertile, its bound to be a huge & productive plant.

I jumped the gun a wee bit. Planted 4 Better Boys in the front of my house last week. Then my neighbor told me that Better Boys tend to get ginormous around here - Better Boy holds the production record of 342 lbs of tomatoes on one plant. Way too much bush for the front of my house. So I just dug 'm up & put some Black Krim in their place. Been raining so much around here the wet adobe is like digging in black peanut butter that sticks to the shovel. Gonna be a long, muddy day....

It didn't get above freezing here all day today. It was 9 above last night at the house (by a lake). We've had snow twice this week. I plant tomatoes the end of May. The very end. Growing season ends about a week after Labor Day.

Northwestern Mass. About as far north and west in this state to still be in this state. About an hour east of Albany NY. It did get above freezing late today. Its 33 now, but the sun is going down.

Done planting just in time for the weather change. It finally stopped raining & we have a string of days in the 70s coming up. Cost me almost $40 for these seedlings, but at least we don't need potting soil or fertilizer round here. I'll make the $40 back in tomatoes that I won't have to buy from the store....

Heirlooms
Pink Brandywine
Brandywine (2)
Red Beefsteak (2)
Belgium Giant
Mortgage Lifter
Marglobe
Mr. Stripey
Black Krim (2)
Black Prince

Hybrids
Husky Cherry Red
Big Beef (3)
Better Boy (4)

You sayin I don't know what I'm doin? Well... you're right. Never grew a hybrid before (this is my second season doin maters). Don't know what to expect from a hybrid. Actually just finished digging up 3 of those Better Boys (doh!). Replaced 'em with 2 Brandywines, a Mortgage Lifter & a Belgium Giant. The Heirlooms did just fine last season & I'm afraid that the Better Boys will get too big & unruly. Gonna try pinching & pruning to keep the plant size down & the mater size up. (record 7 lbs 12 oz from Oklahoma)

Alot of people who grow indeterminate tomato plants will "pinch the runners".



I tie my runners up cause i have room & that's the way i learned it.
