tomato time!

tomato time!

Even though I'm in zone 7b, I'm just now getting tomatoes into the ground. I've gone with nursery plants this year and have Celebrity hybrid for slicing and Sweet 100 hybrid for snacking. No proper cooking tomatoes this year. (Unless of course i find myself stopped at yet another nursery buying new plants like the dork that I am.) First, I need some advice. Has anyone had better yields out of red mulch around their tomatoes? Would anything that reflects more red onto the plant work as well? I'm going to start seedlings myself again next year and will probably go with some heirloom standards (brandywine, yellow pear) but I'd love to know if anyone has a favourite. So, a poll of sorts. What is your absolute favourite: 1. slicing tomato 2. paste tomato 3. cherry/grape variety tomato? You don't have any answer all three if you don't have an opinion on all three - but I'd love any input you guys have. ~Å~
