    Default Growing some early toms 2018

    Following VCs nutty sowing regime, I'm going to start a few toms off on the weekend and post my progress. I know VC has already sown some (no surprises there ) I think Thelma starts off a couple of early plants too.
    The plan is to choose just one or two bush or basket varieties (cordons will just get too leggy)....anyone else care to join in the fun? I'll post with regular updates.

    It's that ^^^one, Thelma but, if you don't mind me saying so, your toms are hugerer than mine.

    Flipping 'eck, Thelma's vanished - Come back - you make me look stoopid.

    Sorry VC I deleted the pic, cos you were right with Bajaja not Bahaha - I had a seed swap pkt that said Bahaha .
    So it was seed packet speaking Spanish not you *I've managed to confuse myself now, as well*

    Between us, we've got this thread off to a really good start
    I think Bahaha is a lot easier to say that Bajaja anyway, so I shall change their name, in my head anyway.

    I'm not digging 16 out just to keep you happy, Scarlet.
    Maybe you should sow more.
