First Tomato Post of the Season

Well ... I almost decided not to start-up again this season but I couldn't resist it!

My intention this season is to stick mainly to bush, cherry tomato varieties, such as:
Tumbling Tom
Garden Pearl
Red Alert
Maskotka
100's & 1000's
Minibel

To name a few, but I'm also growing a few larger varieties including Oregon Spring.

Around the end of January I sowed a couple of Tumbling Tom seeds and these plants are now flowering along with two red Alert plants that I sowed at the beginning of February. It's best to sow plants that are to be grown outdoors at the end of March - but I just can't help it!

Anyway, if we get some reasonable weather, the first tomatoes should be ready to eat around the end of June.
