I planted about 8 tomato seedlings last week. A couple of them were Rutgers (heirloom) and the rest were Celebrity (hybrid) variety. Both are determinate varieties meaning that they will grow to a fixed mature size and ripen all their fruit in a short period. I am sure they will require cages or stalking soon. I also planted Marigolds next to tomatoes to deter the bugs away. They really help. I love the deep orange color of the marigolds. Hopefully my tomato plants will do well this summer like last year.
