I find the first sign of tomatoes to be very exciting! I planted all of my tomatoes on March 5th and all but two varieties have sprouted. My grape and coldset tomatoes are taking a little longer. I was excited to experiment with the Black Krim tomato this year, but when I planted my seeds I realized I somehow forgot to order them. So, on Sunday I picked up some at Valley View Farms in Cockeysville. They only had a pole variety. My tomatoes are always over 6 ft. anyway, having 'pole' as a descriptor only makes me laugh! This should be interesting!
