Tomatoes in March

Of course the unusually warm winter gets the credit, along with the Stupice variety that I HAD to put in the ground on Feb 1st. I've never seen such a vigorous tomato. They are small, about 1 3/4 to 2", but have a nice tang that suits my taste. In the same bed I have some Paul Robeson not too far behind. Maybe the Eastern Europeans have something. I also have some Black Seamen that my neighbor gave me that have green tomatoes. This is why we came to Fl. john

I'm jealous! I have flowers on my cherry toms and my romas, but no tomatoes yet. Hopefully in the next week or so I'll see some little greenies.

RE: Tomatoes in March

Just this week I was able to pick 5 cherry tomatoes and put them on my salad. YUMMO! My roma's are a bit farther behind so I'm still waiting. Glad you're having such great success, John! Way to go!

Glad you're doing so well John, I fear the same warmth that brought me a bumper crop in the fall/winter is going to do me in now. I'm not able to control the worms or TYLCV now, the curse of having a garden 8' from the water, no freezes in the winter but a warm spring is a bugfest! Keep us posted on how you do.


RE: Tomatoes in March

I have a beefsteak that I planted in the fall that is still producing beautifully. And my spring maters plants are full of greenies! And just a few months ago, I was going to give up on tomatoes.
