    I bought two small tomato plants yesterday. I brought them home, replanted them, fed them tomato food and watered them.

    As of 8:02 EST this morning, I'd not yet killed them.

    We have a garden in our back yard. The items that grow best are zucchinis and chives. We have pulled zucchini the size of men's forearms. Tomatoes grow reasonably well here. We have a short growing season here, we can not plant before mid May, and need to harvest by late September due to potential frosts occurring

    We have a long growing season here. Very long.

    I have chives growing in an Aerogarden sitting on the counter in my kitchen. They just started sprouting, so we are kind of excited. I use chives for a lot in cooking. We are also growing 2 different kinds of basil, 2 kinds of parsley and thyme.

    Super, do you have a death clock watch going for these poor little tomatoes? Think positive!

    I actually do .

    I posted on Facebook the other day, "I planted tomato plants at 8:04 am. It is now 9:30 am. They are not dead yet!" And then later, I posted, "It's been 12 hours and they're still alive!"

    Better put some mulch around those bad boys.

    Why, MP? I don't have mulch around them. Just planted them in Miracle-Gro potting soil, and put some tomato food in there.

    Ah, they're in pots? Then you don't need it.

    Just flood the pots once a day.
