Optimum planting out size?
Is there a perfect size for a tomato plant to be transplanted outside?
Last year I probably started my plants too early and ended up with some/most/all being about 2 feet tall by the time I planted them out. I ended up losing a bunch of plants that snapped off at the ground in some high winds. One thing I learned was that the plants that I staked at planting time did fine, the ones that weren't staked, snapped off.
Anyhow I vaguely remember Dave/digdirt posting something about the optimal size for transplanting, but I don't remember the details.
Is there such a thing as too big? I always figured, the bigger they were when they started, the quicker they'd produce.
