Tomato Planting

Large Roma tomato plants from Goebbert's.

Large Roma tomato plants from Goebbert’s.

I ¬†went to Goebbert’s for Tomatoes and they had a 2 for 1 sale on all of their 4″ potted tomatoes. These plants were at least 18″ tall and almost all of them were bearing tomatoes. I am hoping the plants won’t get stunted since they have already set fruit. Here’s what I bought and planted:

 

15 – La Roma (planted 3 across instead of 2 since that worked well in the past)
1 – Beefsteak
1 – Husky Red
2 – Early Girl
1 – Celebrity
1 – Primo Red
1 – Brandywine
1 – Yellow Non-Acid

I also took a trip to Countryside Nursery in Crystal Lake. They have a wide variety of heirloom tomatoes, probably at least 20 varieties, which are grown in their own nurseries. I bought and planted the following, from 3 inch pots:

1 – Black Krim
1 – Cherokee Purple
1 – Aker’s West Virginia
1 – Mortgage Lifter
1 – Mr. Stripey
1 – Oxheart
1 – German Johnson

I also purchased and planted 1 Pineapple Tomatillo which they grew and 2 regular Tomatillos.
