Very nice! Your way ahead of me. When did you plant out? I planted most of my tomatoes around April 20th. We had some low 30s early April so had to wait a bit longer than normal.

Looking good! You're ahead of me, too. Mine are just now beginning to set fruit.

We started March 15th. I know that sounds early, but I use a website hosted by UGA that has weather stations all over GA. Some of the stations had data that goes back top 1995. I looked at the last frost date for the last 10 years and then looked at the 10 day. My wife and I then gambled and started planting out. It took us almost a month to get everything in. Just finished with the okra but we usually wait till the heat shows up for that.

Looks nice, are you using bar code labels to keep track of stuff?
I see some on the plants.

Wow nice payoff if you sell at market. I have gambled and planted early a few times, but the weather here was much cooler than usual. We actually had a spring for once which was nice but unexpected. I really like your setup, I think I'm going to put pine straw down on my beds this year since I have free access to it and it looks good. Beautiful garden!

You're garden looks great. Curious what you are using as mulch. I've had a terrible problem with early blight the last couple of years and am looking for ways to avoid it this year.

I am also struggling with EB. I think it's manageable, I just have to stay abreast of the situation.
B54red posted a link in the disease thread. I'll paste the link.

Hope the link works.

Thanks for the compliment. We are using newspaper, straw, and pine straw. We had 2 weeks of no rain and high humidity. So, I got complacent on the spray schedule. Blight and Septoria have shown up. The Sep is spreading really fast and the EB seems to slowed tremendously. The key is remaining diligent in my efforts, which is really hard for me because is the garden in an old deer food patch about 30 miles from home.

P.S. Just picked one Apricosa and one Purple Bumblebee today, won't be long now till the big ones start breaking.
