Oh What a Happy Day!

Even if I tried, I couldn't hide my excitement!  This has been a weekend of  "tomato talks".  I attended a seminar and gave two tomato growing classes.  Clearly, that means that tomato planting time will soon be here and that has me almost jumping for joy!

I like to use March 15 as a target date for planting tomatoes. It's more important, though, to watch the local weather forecast...tomatoes won't do well in cooler than 50 degree temperatures.  So, before heading to the veggie patch with your gloves and trowel  make sure that the nighttime low is expected to remain above 50 degrees before planting.

In case this post whets your appetite and leaves you hungering for more on how to and when to plant tomatoes, register for my next "Yes, You Can Grow Tomatoes" class on Saturday, April 16 at 10 am.
