You can get a pack of 25 in "moss green" for about $1.40 online. Or - a pack of 40 in multi-colors for $1 from the dollar store, use and save for each year. The colors could also work as identifiers for the various types of tomatoes planted. Cool!
|moss green, they'll blend right in|
Stores here are bringing out all the garden stuff already because March 19th is St. Joseph's Day, and that's the day most folks here start their indoor planting. I remember one year we couldn't even think about starting our outside gardens until mid-June. Last year by late September some of my tomatoes had not yet turned red, so I just wrapped them individually in newspaper and put 'em inside in a basket till they did.
Spring cannot come soon enough for me. From every window -- winter!
