Default Planted my toms and peppers

First year starting from seed and got them all out this weekend.
Peppers are in EB's and 12 Toms are in the new hybrid system with grow bags. I still need to set up my hybrid system for cukes, squash and zukes.

Looking nice!




Two question for you:


1) Are those 15 gallon fabric containers?


2) What varieties of tomatoes are you growing?

10 bags are 15 gal and the first two on the right side are 10 gal. 5 of the 15 gal are square and 5 are round. I was sent the square ones by mistake and company sent me the round ones when I notified them. Like the round ones better. The round ones have draw strings to close up the top some. I need to modify the base a bit to give support wider out from center so bags don't sag off the side. This causes water to drip if the bag is below water level.

I have 2-Sun Golds, 2- Sun Chocola, 2-Super Sweet, 4 Big Beef, 1 Pretty in Pink and one surprise....could be any of the above but not sure which. When I was thinning seedlings I had pulled a few out and decided to put a couple into cells. I then realized I didn't keep track of what was what and thought it would be fun to see what I end up with.

I like the drawstring tops - that's clever!

Yes all varieties are new to me. I've only planted a couple plants for the last two years in EB's. This is the first year starting my own. Expanding this year.
