|My first-round tomatoes are all 1-2 feet tall, and several plants have flowers!
(look carefully in the middle of the picture for flowers)
This is my first time growing a lot of heirloom varieties... these are all indeterminate, so that means they'll keep growing while they're putting on flowers and fruit, right? I'm not used to seeing flowers on such small plants, but they seem healthy.
I decided not to start more seed for a second round. I had two plants that I started for the first round but were too small to plant out when I put the others in, and have since found five volunteers around the garden, all two to three inches tall. I know the volunteers are a crapshoot genetically, but I'm willing to give them a chance. They all went into gallon-size pots this weekend so they can grow up for a while. When my peas stop producing, I'll put the new tomatoes in their half-a-bed (the other half is beans).
