Tomatoes From Seed -- is April 10 Too Late?
Hello! We are in Florida right now on some extended family business that is going to keep us here through the 7th of April. I always like to start most of my tomatoes from seed so I can plant hard-to-find heirlooms, but we're stuck here during the time I usually get my seeds started. Do you think my 'maters will do okay in mid-Michigan if I plant the seeds by April 10? I seem to recall my late aunt -- a master gardener before there were such things -- advising me that even late-planted tomatoes will catch up to store-bought plants if the weather is right. (I'll add that we drive a Prius, so plant shopping here to take back up north is NOT an option!) Thanks for your advice.
