I think I have a problem . . . I am addicted to tomato plants. I planned for only 6 tomato plants this year but left the garden center with 8 and it was difficult not to get more. It took me a good half hour if not more debating between varieties and then picking the perfect plant for each variety.
I ended up with Black Krim, Arkansas Traveler, Brandywine, Jubilee, San Marzano, Pineapple, Sweet 100, and Yellow Plum. Some of the ones that I wanted but decided to try next year are: Amish Paste, Old German, and Mortgage Lifter. I had a hard time deciding between Cherokee Purple and Black Krim. I have had Cherokee Purple before and decided to give Black Krim a try, it's similar but different.
However I still want to go back and get a variety called Independence Day which only takes 49 days to produce tomatoes which is a good month earlier than any other variety. Based on the name they promise that you will have tomatoes by your Fourth of July barbecue. The only problem is that I don't have any room for it and once the other tomatoes come in I won't really want it any more.
When I plant tomatoes I do everythinng in an assembly line fashion. I space my tomatoes 2 feet apart, some people say they need 3 feet for highest yields, but based on my available space I only give them 2 feet. First I measure out the spacing and place them in the garden to determine which variety will go where.
