2011 Tomato Photos (Part 2)

Time for more pics, this thread should be plenty full at 30-40 posts in case I don't get around to part 3 in time.

For those who don't know how to post a photo -
First, upload your picture to a sever such as Photobucket, Flickr, etc (I sometimes use URLs to my Facebook photos). Copy the URL to your image (should start with http://). The URL should end in ".jpg" or another similar image extension - do not copy the URL from your address bar. That will just copy the link of the web page that contains your image. Right-click on the image to get the address of the image. Then post this code in the body of your reply message:
<img src="http://www.example.com/myimage.jpg">
Of course, you replace my example.com address with the URL of the image.

Part 2, I have to toss a pic out there. ;-) These are my cherry tomato seedlings. Placero, Chadwick Cherry & Sungold Select II below. My experiments have left me with half healthy paste & slicing tomatoes, so may have to start those over. :( At least I learned to frickin not use floating pellet trays ever again! lol...

I don't have pictures of seedlings but I do have some pictures of the tomatoes we planted out on March 20th. They are inside my big high tunnel, inside a low tunnel with two layers of row cover and then the two rows are covered with an old piece of 6 mil greenhouse plastic. I have added 2 liter bottles of water to capture heat. Despite the outside temperatures being in the high 20's, under all the cover, it has stayed 45-50 plus degrees at night. During the day, if the sun would shine, it will warm up nicely.

I just started mine a week and a half ago never posted a picture on here so this is a test...Ya it worked

I put mine under lights 8 hours and rotate 3 trays and the other time they are by a window also I just turned on the fan today never tried that before.

RE: Post Your 2011 Tomato Pictures, Part 2

I've got them going in my garage right now where it's 55-60 since the weather turned cold here in charleston. I think you can see all my labels. I have 2 cukes and a Bhut pepper in there too. I also have an oscillating fan on them 24/7 in order to get them used to flowing air.

RE: Post Your 2011 Tomato Pictures, Part 2

I finally had a chance to take some more pictures of my grow shelves. There are four shelves, each hold 8 1020 trays for a total of 32 trays.

If I am seeding 50's or 72's plug trays, I can get a lot of seedlings in a small area, over 2,000! It is usually closer to 1,000 since I don't always seed directly into 72's.

RE: Post Your 2011 Tomato Pictures, Part 2

wow, I am jealous of all those tomatoes! I hope I get some this year. Maybe my worm poop will help? Last year by the time my tomatoes got going the summer was over and I only got a few good ones.

I am hoping this year is different.

All your tomatos look great, finally got around to picking up shop lights to get grow table going, unfortanatly to late to get tomatos growing. But i will get other things planted inside becuase the darn squirrls and prarie dogs or simular type animals ate most of the seed I planted last year, so figured id get them started indoors 1st. tom8olvr, do you think its to early to put tomato plants into garden right now? I was thinking good tomato cages with plastic wrapped around lower half. What do you all think. Thanks Mark

RE: Post Your 2011 Tomato Pictures, Part 2

These are my first ever tomatoes from seed and I feel like a proud Papa. I have 24 plants; Early Girl, Pruden's Purple, Stump of the World, Rendaldo, Sabre and Purple Russian. Seeds sown March 11th, so a month old. I wont be able to plant them out for at least another month, so hopefully they will continue to be happy under the lights.

Well I noticed my first flower buds today. That leaf damage was caused last week when it dropped down to 33F and they were left out (I wasn't home).. didn't do them any good at all.

Coming along nicely, all! =) Mine are starting to take off & get wee lil bud sets. Yay!!!

These are some of my cherry tomatoes. I have more cherry tomatoes & some slightly wee seedlings of Amish Paste, San Marzano Lungo #2 & Rutgers that I had to reseed about 2 weeks ago due to them getting destroyed when I moved...

Happy Gardening, all!
