Maskotka & Tumbling Tom (yellow)
Both were planted as seeds on April 1 in the same soil and same sun, and the difference in size, color and leaves is quite fascinating! Maskotka is on the left (larger).
This is my first year doing tomatoes in containers due to only having a balcony instead of a yard, and I chose these two varieties--one red and one yellow, both good for containers according to my research. I can't wait! And since the weather finally decided to become summer, the tomatoes seem to love it though I am finding that watering every two days is vital.
I thought I had the brilliant idea of buying and using these 5x5 square planters from the hydroponics store; they are a good size and will work great until they go into their final container. But now I see that it wasn't so brilliant as these are much less malleable than regular flimsy plastic containers -- I have no clue how I will transplant but that day will be fun, trying to get these out in one piece.
