I planted two of this variety after I lost some of my tomato plants to frost. They have really taken off and already have a lot of blossoms.
This plant was transpanted about two weeks ago, when it had about 6" sticking up above the soil level. You can’t see it in this picture, but this plant is now over 3’ tall in only a few weeks after being transplanted. The other one is growing well too, but is a little smaller, but if was also much smaller when it was originally transplanted.
The cat in the picture belongs to a neighbor, but makes itself at home in my garden, as do many other cats in the neighborhood. My own kitties are always welcome, though.
This planting is in the Container garden.
