Thanks Dave.....some of the folks around here have been talking about what to do with the "suckers" you pinch off the 'mater plants....something to think about!

 

Nice read!

Katheryn,

 

Since you are from the south you will appreciate this.....   Graft tomatoes to Kudzu. You only have to plant one plant then and it will grow no mater what the weather is.

 

For our northern brethren, Kudzu is a very very fast growing an vigorous plant that will take over anything.  Fall asleep in a chair too close to the kudzu and it will claim you before you finish your nap!

 

This poor fellow stopped to toss out his trash.  He was only out of the car a few moments!

I know it is an old post but I read the Info that Dave posted abou grafted tomato plants. I showed it to my wife and she sent in an order. We should get them in the middle of April. I will post a photo of our small garden when planted and in July.
