It is Time to Plant Those Tomatoes

Andrew Norton

John Schneider has a humorous column in today's Lansing State Journal about his annual battle to plant tomatoes as early as possible. After trying this the past few years, I can relate. However, this year I capitulated and plan on planting my tomatoes this weekend. The past two years have seen an abysmal tomato crop and whether or not it was from planting too early I don't know. What I do know is that I waved the white flag of surrender this year in the hopes of producing a bumper crop for a change.

It appears that the danger of frost might be behind us with summer-esque temperatures throughout the next week or so. So, I will plant those tomatoes this weekend and try to compensate any lack of rain this summer by watering them religiously. We'll see what happens.
