Isn't it wonderful to go down in the vegetable garden and pick up all you need for a good lunch or dinner?So far, I have never sown tomato seeds in late winter in house. But, I am going to do that the next year. I would like to try some new tomato hybrids like so called "black" tomato 'Black Cherry' and I will order some seeds from Thompson & Morgan . Actually, I will order some more vegetable seed for the next season because I cannot find it here in Croatia.
The three kinds of cherry tomatoes.
Cherry tomatoes are good for salads and pizza and I have them planted in large pots. I have three kinds of cherry tomatoes this year, one of them being yellow.
I mulched tomato plot with grass clippings when the soil became warm and planted Tagetes around it. Mulch keeps the moisture and suppresses the weeds. Tagetes keeps the pests away. Mulch also prevents the soil born diseases from splashing up on the plants. The first bottom leaves are the first to catch the fungus and I remove them if I notice them turning yellow.
Water them well and pinch off the suckers that develop between two branches. They do not bear fruit and only take energy away from plant.
