tomatoes ready to move

poppy88(5a)May 22, 2007


I've post this message in the tomatoes forum.. just in case I decided to post the same from the northern gardener.

Did anyone move their tomatoes plants into ground yet? In the past couple of year I moved mine after the victoria long weekend and they usually die right away. This year feel warmer than other, so I was wondering if anyone is brave and had success this year.

Well, I an in Northern Illinois, almost the Wisconsin border. We almost always have a frost or two after Mother's Day, so even though they say May 15, I go by the old June 1 for putting in my tomatoes.
However, this year we have set some heat records, so I tempted fate by putting some things in early, and sure enough we got 2 frosts within 9 days of each other. My tomatoes were okay, because I had only put in the ones I had wall-o-waters enough to cover. Took them off today and my cherry tomatoes have tiny tomatoes, the others have some blooms, and I am planting direct to the garden the rest of them, mostly the beefsteak and plum kinds, along with a couple of heirlooms. So I would say now is them time, since we are in the same zone.

Moved them last night and it's raining now so they look pretty happy. If it gets cold I'll just cover them.
