To all who answered my "split shoulder tomatoes" problem.
This year, I started my seedlings in late February. And I had a very
successful crop. I had six-foot high tomato cages and by July, the
plants were growing above the cages! I had to crop the plants because
if I set tomatoes above the cages, the stems would break. I grew
Brandywine tomatoes, both regular and potato leaf, of course, early
girl, always a winner, cherry tomatoes, San Marzano, and a couple of
hot weather tolerant tomatoes: BHN 444 Hybrid, and Sunmaster.
Next year, 2008, I'll start my first seeds in late January. The
second crop, I'll start in early July.
I get my seeds from: Tomato Growers Supply company, in Florida.
Their catalog must have 150 different categories of tomatoes.
Again, thanks to all and I wish you great luck in 2008.
