Yikes! How many do you keep? I grew about the same number of toms, but I'm planting 67 and the rest go to family & friends.

9 and 3, out of 108 & 63! What will you do with the rest? Do you have homes for them? I start tomato plants for family & friends.

One year I took extras to a food bank, with instructions on how to grow the plants. They all got taken.

yes the neighbors get a few, along with kids and my sister, then i bring all the rest to the U.P. of Mi. for people up there, might even have a space to plant more for me up there, they said they would watch them while i wasn't there, (think that means , they'll eat them for me! )---lol -tom

Yes, "watchers" do get fringe benefits! That's one way to get to grow more plants- give to others & you at least get to taste them, decide if you like it well enough to grow it yourself. What varieties of tomato do you have?

You are worse then me! I kept 50 out of 250. Last year I said I was not going to keep all those extras. Bit it is so difficult to throw out small plants.

I have trouble throwing out any. For example, I had a helmet head and I pulled the head off. Rather than throw it away, I decided to see what would happen. After many days, voila! leaves began to appear and then more. My question was answered and my patience rewarded. It's also a volunteer.

A good looking list. But you're gonna have a lot left over for the food bank or a community garden, or something. Clearly, you need to enlarge your garden.
