Growing Tomatoes all up in Here!

Well, I have threatened to plant tomatoes for a while now and I finally did it. On a small scale to see how I do. I have 3, yes 3 tomato plants in plastic buckets and can't wait for them to spring up. I love tomatoes, but hate the old plastic tasting ones you get through the winter. I would rather go without than eat one of those. My favorite salad is tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and celery. All diced up and sprinkled with apple cider vinegar, black pepper, salt and dill weed. Awwww man!

I have planted 3 different types...
1. Mister Stripey, a yellow tomato with red streaks.
2. An heirloom called Rutgers
3. Another heirloom called German Queen

I wanted Cherokee Black tomatoes but couldn't find the plants, gonna keep looking though, they are my favorite. OK gotta go water them. Stay tuned and I will give you tomato updates.
