Spring Milestone the first tomatoes are in.

Most of yesterday It was dreary, with sprinkles so I took a Chance and planted 5 of my precious Sungold cherry tomatoes in pots in front of my house yesterday. Just like a tornado seems to be attracted to mobile homes within hours we had a wicked thunderstorm, tornado warnings and 15 degree drop in temperature. Walked the pooch this morning and it was 48 degrees but the tomatoes looked ok.

I have to say we are “god willing” 2 months away from some glorious little orange balls of sweetness - I cant wait.

Good luck on those "maters" Ray, one of my favorites also. I have not planted them in the garden yet, usually May 5th here to make sure no frost. I usually plant 3 or 4 different types just for the variety.

Here in Bradenton, FL, we are nearing the end of tomato growing season, which for us begins around December. Not a great year but we had some decent heirlooms. This week we are getting ready to harvest a large rack of banana's. We started out with one tree and have moved about half a dozen pups around the yard so now we seem to have a new rack coming on every month or so.
