I just cannot wait until I can pick vine-ripened tomatoes from the roof! I started the seed process in February. I planted both pole and bush varieties. This is my first year to grow either, so I want to experiment. I grew up surrounded by fresh tomatoes. My grandma always had a garden full! Consequently, my mom always had fresh garden tomatoes sunning on the kitchen window sill. I don't have the love for plain tomatoes that my mom or grandma did, but I sure love to add them to recipes!
Here is day one of starting my tomato babies inside:

Today they look like this:
I've started the hardening process and I hope to plant them outside in mid-April - Maybe Easter weekend?
