Sorry Carol, I missed your post until Cinda's made the thread pop up again Sad

Yes, tomatoes will put on roots with a horizontally-buried stem, so there's no harm in trying that. I wonder if you have a disease stressing this year's plants... I'm battling root knot nematodes myself - you can't see their knots until you pull out the plant, but they make it weaker and less productive all season.

Truth is worth finding
I have read that marigolds are good for nematodes so when I pull marigolds in the fall I toss the plants into next years garden and till them under. figure it cant hurt the soil and may be of some benefits . of course there are always some volunteer seedlings in the spring.

I usually plant marigolds between my tomatoes to keep away cut worms.

I pulled all the tomato plants except the gooseberry. It has some unripe fruit on it but I'm having a hard time keeping the frost protection in place with all the wind we've been having.

My tomato seeds are just coming up. DH cannot have tomatoes anymore because his kidney problems keep him from being able to eat foods with potassium. So I will only plant one large variety, Cherokee Purple, and four cherry sized, Galena's Yellow Cherry, White Cherry, Black Cherry and Matt's Wild Cherry. I am also trying the Gooseberry again. I have them under the grow lights in my small greenhouse in the living room. I am planning to grow them hydrponicly this year.

I'm going to grow CHerokee Purple again this year, they tasted so very good for me.

I have had to reseed my Cherokee purple. I hope it comes up soon. I had to pot up a few seedlings tonight. My white cherry tomatoes, my Bush hybrid tomatoes and my Galena's Yellow Cherry. I really love the yellow cherry and it is very prolific.

Sungold is a yellow cherry giving great results in this area. Hm, I was going to grow one but I don't think I saw any seeds for it in my box. Well, we have a swap so someone might have one, or I know where to get seeds. Just got my Cherokee and German Johnson planted last night.

My Cherokee purple came up from the second planting and is doing well. It will need potting up soon. My others are doing well but the galena's yellow cherry has some yellow spots on the leaves. I think it may have gotten too wet so I am letting it dry out a bit.
