We planted almost all the tomato starts yesterday. After we redressed the tops of the pots with more compost, we brought up the little guys and placed them ever so gently in their new homes. We are doing a lot of tomatoes this year with the intent of making and canning tomato sauce. I found these great heirloom varieties at the Feed Store where I buy the chicken's food and scratch. We planted Arkansas Travelers, Violet Jaspers, Moneymakers, and a Roma type that I don't remember the name of. Here are some pictures that I hope our tomatoes will look like. So we had the rain, now let's get that sunshine and heat that these little lovelies need. Fingers crossed.
