Air Layering is where you get the plant to root while it is still attached to the plant. I will get some pictures.

His tomato is going gangbusters there. What variety is it and how many stems is he going to allow?

I'm enjoying following this thread.

It looks like that Sweet Little Italian Lady has good taste! Perhaps that's what you should call this tomato....

Nice pix. Thanks for sharing your designs. I'm using my gloomy January to play around with SIP's.

I've never been to Roatan but a dear friend owned Bay Island Beach Resort there was always inviting me to come down. I should have taken her up on the offer.

That looks so much like a tomato I have been trying to ID that came from an unknown source in Edmonton originally 15 years ago ! Is it pink when it's ripe?
