Default Fall tomatoes

I giving it one more try. I've tried to do the this before and it's always so darn hot, the plants won't set fruit. I picked up a Husky Cherry Red and a Celebrity at a big box store (please don't judge ). I didn't want to plant them in the usual area b/c of nematodes and disease present from the spring crop. The cherry is in a pot and the Celebrity is near a compost area. The temps have been unseasonably cooler for about the last 10 days b/c of frequent rains. I am under a flash flood warning. So they are off to a good start. Wish me luck.

Donna, good luck! Husky Cherry Red and Celebrity sound like good choices; I hear good things about each. Report back when you can to let us know how they worked out.

Buying from a big box store works

It's all about giving it a try - and then keep on trying. We don't know each other, but I'm proud that you are growing some tomato plants. I do understand the nematodes and soil diseases all to well.
