I am approximately at the last frost date. I typically dont plant till the last week of april. What are your thoughts on starting tomatos now? I started some 6 weeks ago but they didnt turn out so well cause im experimenting with making my own starting mix.

RE: Late Start

It will take at least 6 weeks to have transplants ready to set out.. I am starting mine tomorrow but then we can't set them out until the first week of June and we typically have tomatoes ready to eat in August.

I don't know how hot it gets where you live but if tomatoes have done all right in the past in your climate then I'd say go ahead and plant but buy a couple of ones already started for earlier tomatoes. Then you'd have the best of both worlds

RE: Late Start

ohh good idea. yeah really i could plant right now without fear of frost. ill have to try doing both. I still have some seedlings alive but they arent very happy.
