Wait to plant your tomatoes until after our frost free date – around Mother’s Day. If planting earlier, make sure to watch the temperatures and be prepared to cover your tender plants when it dips below 50 degrees.
**For canning and freezing, look for Determinate varieties. These slow, or stop growing when they begin producing, and the fruit ripens all at once. They are also bushy in form, making them good choices for growing in containers. Indeterminate Tomatoes are the most common varieties of tomatoes you will find. They grow very tall and can continue to produce fruit frost. They are the best choice if you are planting your tomatoes in the ground, have a good amount of space to work with, and would like to harvest fruit throughout the growing season.
