    Started from seed and are just 2 inches tall right now. I need to let them get a bit bigger and figure out how to stake them later on. Love those home grown tomatoes. ((drool)) after the rock hard store bought ones.
    Yeah, those hot house disgusting things that could pass for a hardball baseball. Gross!

    That almost sounds like a true tomato tree... I used to have a 'tree tomato' that produced small, oblong fruits that tasted more like a guava.

    Cool when its time to take them out of the pots make sure they are planted far, far, away from the house.

    I'm setting up a place about 250' from the house... that should be good for about 200 years or so... then it's somebody else's problem.

    Update: the rest of the seeds are now sprouting! 10/10

    Well, technically they aren't mine... I stole a coupla' sequoia cones from a park and a front yard up the street from our apartment and then smuggled them across the border... but other than that they are mine! I've only planted ten and so far five have broken through the surface of the soil. That's pretty damn good considering they only have a germination rate of 40%!

    I had no idea you could plant cones and they would grow, awesome G-man!Name:  CAZoutstandin.gif

    now you know I LOVE GARDENING, so I will expect a pic later when they have grown a bit bigger.

    how deep did you plant them?

    how far apart?

    in sun or part sun or shade?

    did you use regular top soil?
