Same here. I planted on May 10th and had plenty of dirt leftover. If you need some let me know.

Nobody wants that dirt from Pennypack and State road....you can put it on concrete and it still grows tomatoes even if you didn't put down seeds

Picked 2 on Friday. Always plant 1 or 2 Early Girl tomato plants, so your the first in the neighborhood with red ones!

Long wait for me, not frost free until June in my area.

Lettuce is ready, bacon is ready, but no tomatoes

Look for mountain spring. I planted memorial day and have been picking for a week. Good early tomato with chill resistance, not frost but cold hardy. Don't look great but taste like the real deal. Waugh!

Must be magic tomatoes or you used plants that were started inside?

Picked several cherry maters so far and have an early girl that is pretty orange that will be ready this week.
Neighbor has a plant full of early girls ripe for picking right now that I drool over every time I look over from my pool deck. Kicker is he doesn't even eat them. Only his wife does!
Picked several green peppers already but my peppers lower leaves are falling off. Must have some kind of blight or something. Green peppers, jalapenos, hungarian waxes, they are all doing it.

Don't everyone use plants started inside? These are 60 day tomatoes. Jet star are 72 day and early girl are 68 day.
If you are planting tomatoes from seed outdoors good luck picking a second hand in most od PA. Waugh!

Not from seeds but seedlings. I usually get tomatoes from end of July through September.

I don't know if any of you guys do this but I clip off the suckers and plant them also. I'll get around a dozen or two tomatoes off of them.
