Tomatoes go on an outing

My tomatoes are on a field trip today

They are out enjoying the sun and getting a feel for the great outdoors. It’s beautiful today, and there is a huge temptation to plant them. I asked some of my friends, and some have tomatoes already planted, while others say to never plant your tomatoes until the end of May, because you could still get surprised by a frost. Historically, I have stunted a lot of tomatoes by putting them out too early! So this year I am waiting. Instead they can enjoy a little ‘hardening off’ time outside on nice days, and go back inside where they are protected for a couple more weeks.
