Side note conversation, we could all meet up perhaps at a byob restaurant in Pearland...anyone know of any?
Planted in late March 2010 - just as early as the rhizomes got to the mail box. The second year plant sprouted by late February this year. The growth cycle is definitely earlier down here. I have baby cones forming already too.

I am up for a meet just about anytime. I don't know Pearland well enough to recommend restaurants. Have beer - will travel!

I'm trying for the first time this year. Sounds like I planted a bit late - just got it potted about a week ago. I'm worried about getting enough light though. Lots of shade up here in the woodlands. It's gonna be partial sun at best...

Grrrrr... That last picture makes me want to give up on tomatos. I've been growing them for 5 years now here in oregon, and my best year ever was about as much as you've got on your counter now! Last year I had 12 plants and due to our late, wet, cold spring I only got about two dozen slicers fully ripe and maybe 3 lbs. of cherries. This year I'm going to plant 15+ plants, and half of them are super early variety indet. Hopefully I'll get a better haul. Oh yea, and around here my stupice (super early variety) don't ripen until the beginning of July.

On a side note, I planted my hops about 4 weeks ago and the cascade and willamettes are already 3 ft. tall. I may have to go all southpark mad geneticist and breed a hop that grows tomatos.
