know what you mean: I switched to a container garden 2 years ago and am still learning. Other than okra, and herbs I haven't had a lot of good luck. I am hoping this year will be better. Oh, last year we did do tomatoes from seed, they were unbelievable, all cherry and grape types It was both my daughters and granddaughters first attempt at gardening.

We were just talking about our gardens yesterday. It is about time for us to plant the seeds inside. Last year we did in the first week of Feb. WE have a busy few weeks ahead of us, but should be ready to start by the 10th or so. It seems all three of us gals got seeds in our Christmas stocking this year.

I wish I could get Arkansas Traveler tomatoes here, I'll get a couple of different varieties at my local nursery when planting season starts June 1.

It seems early to me, but heck I am not a great gardener, just enjoy eating fresh produce asap. This has been such a strange winter who knows when we will be able to put our tomatoes in the garden?

I usually plant a 'Sweet 100s' (or similar) cherry tomato, an heirloom like 'Brandywine', and I've been planting 'Crimean black' tomatoes. I've only gotten to eat a couple of the Crimean tomatoes (which were tasty), because the birds get them first. I've even tried netting, only to see birds crawl under the netting.
