Hi Ben. How timely - I have your package of these seeds sitting next to my keyboard, to remind me that it's time to get started!!!

I am starting seed to grow in my greenhouse now. It will be another 2 months before I start the seeds for my outside garden.

Had a few seed starting questions, this is what I do for an outside grow in the soil garden. I like to start them about 8-10 weeks before I want to transplant them outside.

The plants should be around 12-16 inches tall. When planting dig the hole deep enough to burry half the plant. Cut the leaves off near the stem for the ones that would get buried.

If starting plants without enough natural light I use 4' fluorescent cool white bulbs. I like to add 15-20 watts per SQ FT so the plants don't get spindly from too little light.

Ben was kind enough to send me some seeds last year and the plants grew great. The problem for me was that since I never had the chocolate cherry variety before, I kept waiting for them to get bright red for picking, like most cherry tomatoes. Unfortunately they didn't. So I'm sure I missed their peak ripeness while they were still on the vine. Live and learn.

Here is a picture of them. The top 3 are ripe and ready to eat. They have a green shoulder(top) when ripe and are a very sweet tomato.

Been gardening off and on for a little bit. Don't have a green thumb but do well growing squash, zucchini, jalapeños, eggplant. The squirrels and bugs got my last tomato's.. We're thinking of trying above ground this year maybe.

Thanks Ben. By the way - the chocolate cherry tomatoes grow like wildfire up here, and taste delicious. Other than a few oddballs I bought for seeds, the chocolate cherries were the only ones I actually paid for last season.

Last year I bought starters and planted in mid-May. This year I will use a combination of seeds and starters.
