Misti, my tomatoes sometimes have to be repotted in gallon containers if spring is really late arriving. I repot the first time in 4" pots and then hope to transplant outside the third week in March. The peppers and eggplants don't grow rapidly until the weather warms up, so 4" pots take them right up to transplant time. I'm going to try to keep the greenhouse a little cooler this year and see if I can slow the tomatoes down some. The exhaust fan was burned out last year, but it has been replaced finally.

I'm going to plant some small watermelons too. I really got hungry for watermelon about the time the unripe ones in the grocery store went up to $6.98 each. That would be high for a little melon even if it tasted good. Tried one. Big mistake. I don't know if Golden Midgets can be grown in a greenhouse successfully, but I have some seeds and will find out.
