Sorry to hear about this, but it looks like they will perk up with some care. All is not lost!

I think some of you guys but not all fail to realized just how far north and just how short the growing season is where Tom lives.
Almost as short as mine here in Texas as far as tomatoes are concerned.
Were cold weather hits him the heat kills me.

Just a thought and not trying to start a squabble.

So Worth, what you're saying is that in your opinion, he'd better get something in the ground pronto and not spend precious weeks babying undersized plants? That makes sense. Maybe he's best off to buy some and get them in ground now. Then he can tend the runts and if they make it in time, he can plant some of those out too.

Pretty much so.
I haven't lived in this part of Texas or even Texas all my life.
Plus I know what late planting of small plants can do even here, the plants live but the blossoms drop.
It is only recently that they have began selling plants at the right time of the year here to even get anything out of them.
