I am getting all my supplies and seeds ready to start my tomato season of 2012.
I will use ROOT ORGANIGS soil medium and my heating mat to start my tomatoes seedlings.
This year I will start the larger tomatoes first and after the cherry size ones (which they have no problem on our hot weather). The larger tomatoes will not take the heat like the smaller ones, so I am starting them earlier.
The date below are suggested by the "2012 North American biodynamic sowing and planting calendar" by Maria Thun.
I have been following her calendar for a while now and it works like "magic"
December "FRUIT crop" planting dates:
15, 16, 17 December 2011: I will plant my larger size tomatoes (ex. Celebrity, BHN444, Black Krim, Cheroke Purple ...)
24, 25 December 2011: I will plant my cherry tomatoes (ex. Sweet 100, Gold Nudget, Sungold ...)
