My 2014 Tomato Seed Order and Tomato Planting Strategy: Woo-Hoo!

My 2014 Tomato Seed Order & 
Tomato Planting Strategy: Woo-Hoo! 

I just order about $100 worth of tomatoes seeds. I think it is 27 varieties in all. That does not include the 15 or so varieties I have that I saved seeds from 2013 for 2014. 

Now there is a method to my tomato madness (I think). I selected and bunch of early varieties and no varieties that take over 75 days to mature first fruit. My late July and August temperatures get to high for many tomatoes. That being said I bough a few heat tolerant varieties to test out.


Cherry and Small Tomatoes - The Rusted Garden 2014

I also bought about 10 different types of cherry and currant tomatoes. I will do a complete small fruited tomato garden that will be highlighted in a YouTube series. Along with a series on heat tolerant tomatoes.

I also have a planting strategy to plant the early tomatoes, 60 days or so, two times in 2014. Once in April and again in July. I want to get two plantings. I will see how that goes. I will be using containers, a green house and some tricks for cold weather protection.
