Started a 12 cell a few days ago with the following:

Super Sweet 100
Grub's Mystery Green
Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge
Green Zebra
Cherokee Purple
Sungold
Yellow Pear
Tropic
San Marzano (x4)

Most are up and I immediately transferred them to a peat pot of MM, buried up to their necks. No lights, just using a windowsill. If they get too leggy there I will put them out on the porch sitting in a shallow tub of water.

Now I've just got to pull enough summer crops to make room for them Wink

Anyone else getting their fall maters going?

I am growing some backups. I take some of the larger suckers, trim the leaves and leave the stems for the bottom 6" or so (roots will form on these stems). Then I bury them 6" down in MM and cross my fingers. A couple didn't take the heat from last week, but I am 6 for 8...

I am doing this b/c I have some kinda blight going on in the main tomato bed.

Squat, have you ever brought them in and left them in a up of water, Rowena does this with a lot of plants and I tried with some basil, voila about a week later roots and a new plant. I've never tried but it sounds like it's worth a shot, might help more of them take. Hmmm I think I just talked myself into trying it Very Happy

Yes Ellie I planted mine this last weekend. Plant a Porter, Celebrity, Early Girl, Better Boy, a brand of cherry I don't remeber and am trying an Indigo Rose. Can't wait to see how that one turns out. Never tried a purple tomato before. Also plant Egg Plant seeds.

I'm waiting for my older son to get back from visiting my family in NC, then we'll start the Amish paste toms for fall/winter, and try Squat_Johnson's plan for the cherry toms. My Roma & Heatmaster toms are pretty well done for after Debby dumped on us, but the top of the cherry tom looks pretty hopeful.

I did this with one of my best little 6" seedlings that I smacked and broke Shocked ! Less than a week in a cup of water and I had good roots showing. It went straight from the water to the garden. Out in the garden now, you can't tell it ever had a set-back. Healthy, strong, big, and setting fruit! happy dance
