2009 Container Garden: Tomatoes

It's been a while since I've posted, but now Spring is nearing and I'm getting the itch to plant 2009's container garden. Honestly, I've already succumbed to temptation and put out two tomato plants--one each of the Patio and a Silvery Fir Tree varieties. It may be a little early, but I couldn't wait and the weather is nice.

In addition to the Patio and Silvery Fir Tree I'll soon be setting out seedlings of the following varieties: Black Krim, Black Prince, Red Siberian, Hawaiian Tropic, German Queen, San Marzano, Brown Berry, Green Grape, and Bicolor Cherry. For the Fall I plan on replacing the poorest performers with Stupice, Black Cherry, and Jubilee.
