Yay! I finally planted these babies and I must say, they are beautiful! Each plant stands at least a foot tall, some of them are even taller. And they are so healthy. These are the first tomatoes I've ever planted in my garden that I grew from seed. Well, how about that! :)
Yes, you could say, I'm a little proud of that fact. Don't mean to be cocky or anything, but I nurtured and babied these plants. I'm so happy and thankful to have gotten them to this point. And after I planted these seedlings last night, it R.A.I.N.E.D!! You have no idea how wonderful the sound of that rain was overnight. It's been months, yes, months, since we have any rainfall. And it was so very welcome here in the hills of South Texas.
Anyway, I planted nine plants. And yes, I probably overplanted for that bed, but I'll make it work:) I'll just have a lot of tomatoes to cook with, give away, make sauces, maybe can some, etc. I planted three Martian Giants, three Peron Sprayless,two Chadwick Cherries and one Genovese. Here is a link to a prior post on my blog, describing these tomatoes.
So we'll see how these tomato plants fare through this coming summer. And you can bet, I'll keep you posted!
