I wanted to make this thread to help me keep track of and document my tomato plants.

Hopefully it can be helpful to others also!

I direct sowed these tomato seeds, which took a while to sprout, but I had a lot germinate after a little while and they are growing well!

They are planted with a few other plants, some on purpose and some not, but it works out well to have lots of different things growing together!

The tomatoes are coming along good in a polyculture with some squash and greens.

The tomato is getting bigger and is starting to get some flower buds  (not visable in this picture).

I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
