Totally Tomatoes

Dear Self in the Spring of 2013:

Do not repeat your actions of 2012 and put off getting your warm weather garden planted on time.  Remember how disappointed you were when you were getting your first round of ripe tomatoes in the last week of August.

With kindest regards,
California Gardener in Zone 23, 2012

There, that should take care of the chance I make that mistake again. 

Finally, I have a harvest of tomatoes perched on the edge of ripeness.  Two days ago, the tomatoes were the color of an orange red Crayola.  After a weekend spent on the vine, hopes are high for perfectly red ripe tomatoes.

When *should* you plant your 'maters?

Depending on which area you live in, you might be able to plant as early as March or April. You want the ground to be warm to provide a welcoming environment for the tomato plants.

I think I was planting in May this year. :(
