Planting out our tomatoes

After 7 weeks of cultivating tomato seedlings and potting them up into two different stages, we felt like the time was right to get them into the ground. It has been an unseasonably mild spring with more sunshine than usual so we decided to get an early jump on the season.
After a few weeks of dry weather we had our first rainfall over night so I did a final tilling this morning and the added moisture made for a nice consistency and texture of the soil. We planted the indeterminates inside the walk-in tunnel frame and plan to grow the bush varieties outside the frame. The determinates are all extra early so we hope to have harvested them well before the fall. If the weather fails to cooperate we can always cover the lower growing bush tomatoes with our low tunnels ( 6' wide by 3' high).
