I know, its 12 degrees out and everything is iced over, including my tomato cages. But, Spring will be here in no time, and it is time to start thinking about what to plant. If you are inclined to start inside from seed, you should be ordering, or buying tomato seeds in the next month. I have purchased many heirloom varieties from Tomatofest. The most succesful were the Costoluto Genovese, although I didn’t love the flavor. I did love the Purple Cherokee, Chocolate Cherokee, and Black Cherokee tomatoes. Very mild and less acidic than non-heirloom varieties. I ate them like candy. I have not decided whether I’ll do seeds this year, I have had so much more success with transplants. Some of my best transplants came from the Sunshine Community Garden plant sale, which I believe was in March. Anyway, while you are inside, escaping the sub-freezing temperatures, why not think about what you are going to grow in the Spring.
