The good folks at Plants on Deck are decidedly too busy these days to go through the ordeal of starting plants from seed. Last year, despite their early arrival, the Celebrity tomatoes from Gurney’s worked like a charm. This year, the resistant-to-everything Early Girls arrived even earlier. Like, in early April. And unlike last year, this has been a cool and rather delightfully long-lasting spring. Even though the seedlings hung out in an indoor/outdoor fashion for a week, it was still too cold and too early and two out of three have kicked it.
Although the Am Ex has been credited, Early Girls were out of stock and POD’s back to the drawing board.
So, a trip to the Depot resulted in a new, green and hearty-looking tomato.
Bad blogger confession: The tag got pitched. No clue what the thing is!
