We live in an area with a long growing season our last frost in late April &
first frost in November. We planted a portion of our garden right before
the heavy spring rains hit nad they drowned the garden seeds. The soil is
only recently been dry enough to work and plant again. I have only tomato
seeds and cannot at this time buy tomato plants to get a jumpstart. Is it
too late to plant the tomato seeds? If I do plant them, what precautions
should I take to help the plants grow well. We have to grow organically due
to health reasons so non-organic products (i.e. fertilizers) cannot be used.
Thanks in advance,
Joe & Paula Jones

In most areas tomatoes are not planted directly into the soil as seeds. They
need to be started indoors in order to give them long enough time to mature
and fruit. Tomato seeds are relatively expensive for many varieties which
would make it hard to plant individual seeds spaced apart properly to grow,
unlike some small plants where you put lots of cheap seeds in the soil and
weed out the surplus.
