Final 2013 Tomato List

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Grabbed a few more plants at Lowe’s today. No Early Girls at the local nurseries I checked, but Lowe’s had some. Final lineup from N to S (with nursery where I got the plant): Independence Day (Red Barn), Valencia Orange (Shoal Creek), Lemon Boy (Shoal Creek), Super Fantastic (Lowe’s), Early Girl (Lowe’s), Sweet 100 (Shoal Creek), Sun Gold (Shoal Creek).


2013 Tomatos In

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Barely have had time to think about tomatos this spring, but managed to get started this weekend. Amended the garden with the same stuff as last year: two bags of Natural Gardener Revitalizer compost, 8 lb dolomite, 3 lb of garden tone organic fertilizer. Got four plants in yesterday (4/7): Sungold, Sweet 100, Valencia Orange (new variety for us here at PP) and Lemon Boy. No decent Early Girls at the nursery, so will seek those out and plant those this week.
