No greenhouse as of yet... though I've been pondering the idea. Next year I'll start them 6 weeks early. Considering how large those plants were, I'm surprised how well they're doing. I was planning for the worse, and started a 2nd batch with 3 weeks left to planting. Those ones are doing ok, though they haven't caught up to the first batch. I couldn't manage to give away quite all the extras, and I couldn't bring myself to snuff them, so they're a little crowded.
That I'll do also. The larger seedlings had a tough time standing up on their own.
Thanks, I'll check those out.
I'd never seen one of those before, but looked it up. Nasty looking critter.
So far I've been lucky. The only insect problem I've noticed so far with my tomatoes is ants, which I had last year. So far this year, I haven't seen any.
Last year I had a rabbit get in and destroy my 4 Roma seedlings, which I started. At least it was just the Romas, and not something like my 1884s, which I couldn't buy a replacement for. The rabbits can't get in the garden anymore. In retaliation, it seems they've decided to trash my wife's flowers in the front of the house.
