    Thank You! Maybe I'll manage a tomato farm next year!

    I have the Salt Spring Island Seeds' "Wild Cherry" growing but the soil is seemingly too hard. I have put Burpee's "Cherry Jubilee" into an upside-down planter.

    Good to know! Thanks. Had heard they changed the formulation a bit in recent years, mayybe for human safety, but never looked into it.

    And finally I would like to mention why I bought those four wild tomato cultivars "Cuatomate", "Wild Cherry"(not like Matt's from Salt Spring Seeds), "Matt's Wild Cherry" and "Coyote".

    A person can plant them without poles, can repopulate as "volunteers", possibly no maintance and I suppose they can grow in the total shade if part of the plant get moderate sun. A person said, "Even in the Dominican Republic Matt's Wild Cherry grows without watering".

    Bare ground planting from seed!

    Ispolin was sold out. But I think I bought Ispolin under a different name. Ispolin grows like small trees!

    I'm excited with the tomato seeds I bought this year! The ones I already mentioned from Burpee! But also the four cultivar wild tomatoes. "Cuatomate", "Wild Cherry"(From Salt Spring Seeds)(This is different from "Matt's Wild Cherry" which I purchased else where) and "Coyote".

    "Coyote" seeds haven't sprouted yet I guess. Sometimes tomato seeds take
    16 days to germinate.

    I remember a Better Boy plant produced 342 pounds of tomatoes. The cultivar was a trend in the 1960's. Just as Better Boy "replaced" Best Boy there seemingly is now "Big Beef" and "Steak Sandwich" and perhaps others as new trend setters.

    I have a couple of "Steak Sandwich" currently growing the tallest. I also bought and in growing order of height of the remaining seedlings from Burpee are: "Power Pops", "Fourth Of July", "Sweet Tangerine","Sungold", "Cherries Jubilee".

    Depends on the plant, check Google on the plants you want to plant. Some plants grow in late sun, but never truly thrive. Some won't flower or produce fruit, some will. Try growing a little of everything you want, its your garden. Micro climates make a differance too. Shelter, shade, temp, wind, water, etc..

    If it gets sun all day after 10:30 that should be fine.
