    The first 2 rows are Parks Whopper, next row is Parks Season Starter and the last 2 rows are Polbig tomatoes. Planted March 8th.

    You should be pleased! Look at how sturdy the stems are, and the leaves are green and healthy. You are going to have quite a tomato crop this year!:sete_005:

    Looking good, 2OF. Your toms are a tad further along than mine.
    when do you plan to pot them on into the next sized pot?

    I did not get any Whoppers this year and I am not a happy camper. My supplier (feed store) did not order any. Had to go with Super Fantastic. Still good but not as good as the Parks Whopper.

    Thanks all, for the nice comments. I planted them in deeper pots so I'm waiting for them to grow a little more roots so the soil doesn't fall apart. They will be planted in the greenhouse the middle of May. We planted chard in the greenhouse about a week and a half ago trying to beat the hatching of the leaf miners and it's already up. Plus, this is the 3rd year for our asparagus so hopefully we can have enough to eat and freeze for later!

    Hummer, I only wish my tomato starts looked that good! They are being raised by 2ofus, obviously a tomato guru.

    No guru here but thank you! I just stick the seeds in potting soil, water them, put them under lights...and cross my fingers! :fingerscrossed: This year they really liked me but my broccoli plants are not happy with me this year. I'm posting pictures tomorrow to see if any one can help me figure out what went wrong.
