Hello again.
I guess it's the same climatic zone as mine in Ústí nad Labem, which is 6a. Most of Central Europe is like that. My garden is higher, so it's probably 5b. Anyway, our conditions are nicely comparable.

OK, I had a look where you live...it is about 50km away from Dresden.
Almost the same climate as by me.

Hello, Anneliese.
I have always thought that tomato is the most beautiful "flower" in the world. Great plant, great photo.
Just a few questions. When do you usually have your first ripe tomatoes in your greenhouse? Do you think this year will be different? Can your glasshouse be "emergency heated"?

Anneliese---I'm particularly interested in how your Karkiano variety does for you this season because I received some of that seed in "Carolyn's Last Seed Offer" and I'm getting ready to trans plant the small seedlings into 3-1/2" pots and start to harden them off. I've never grown any Spanish varieties before and I'm grateful to trial this one for the 2021 growing season.

Usually I have my first ripe tomato end of June.(greenhoouse) but - I start with seeding 15th January!
Yes I can heat my greenhouses I do that with clay pots.

Hello Anneliese,
thank you. But that heating is just to "keep off the frost". It doesn't do much for the development of the plants, does it?

Your greenhouse must be awfully small. I use a propane camp stove with a fan,it does great,my greenhouse is 12x48 and it only costs about 2 dollars a night to keep it from freezing, and usually by morning it's 50 to 60 degrees in there.
