Wait a bit for tomatoes

Sow tomato seeds for transplanting in early to mid-May. When seedlings reach three to four inches, transfer them to larger pots for proper root development – a six-inch pot can take four seedlings. The larger pots can be placed in a cold frame that vents on warm days.

Don’t plant tomatoes too early: Cool nights and cold, wet soil will slow their development.
