Tomatomania!

The tomatoes are doing fabulous, and are just shy of 4 feet tall. It’s crazy, just one month ago they were only about 6 inches in height. The first petals are dropping, exposing the tiny fruits. Just another couple of weeks and I should be harvesting the first outdoor Cherry Buzz tomatoes of the season. I’ve had tomatoes producing in my greenhouse since November, but unfortunately there isn’t much space in there for more than a few plants due to all the seedlings. Black Krim, Gold Nugget, Early Girl, and Sweet 100’s are the varieties I have in the greenhouse. They all are doing quite well in 5 gallon black nursery pots. The only complaint I have about greenhouse tomatoes is the stalks are always a bit daintier than the thick robust stalks and stems seen on outdoor tomatoes. I’m too lazy to set up a fan in there to strengthen the stalks. Conserving energy is also important.
