Tomato Plants

I believe it was early March when I picked up some tomatoes at the Sunshine Community Gardens Annual Spring plant sale. They have a great assortment of tomato, pepper and herb plants for sale. I planted three tomato plants in full sun in a larger garden and I planted three tomato plants in a smaller garden with more shade. The tomato plants that were planted in full sun are very healthy, but the tomato plants in the smaller garden are putt-putt – ing along.

Here is a link to their site: http://www.sunshinecommunitygardens.org/

I picked up the following tomato plants:

Also, I tried to plant tomato seeds this winter in hopes of some tomatoes to come from seed. This was more of an experiment for me as a novice gardener to find if it is possible to have tomatoes from seeds.

I know I planted the tomato plants late, which I expect to have a late harvest. The tomato plants have grown considerably due to the recent rains.

Here are some pictures of the tomato plants.
