Last week I posted about my plans for late summer tomatoes using suckers pinched from my early tomatoes. After a week in water, the stems have roots. It was time to pot them.
After potting, I put them out under a shade tree. They aren’t ready for a full day in the sun. They need to be hardened off gradually like other veggies that get transferred from indoors to out. In another week they will be ready for their place in the garden.
The plants I took these starts from are just forming pea to marble sized fruits. When those begin to wear out, these should be producing. These are Arkansas Travelers, an heirloom that produces lots of juicy deep pink tomatoes. Any tomato variety will root easily.
