Growing your own tomatoes

Spring is finally here, and despite the mounds of snow on my lawn, I planted my tomato seedlings for this summer's crop.

I'm trying 7 different types of tomatoes and so far, everything has sprouted except for the beefsteak and the Queens varietals.

I also started my herb garden seedlings. I have 5 different kinds of basil ranging from Cinnamon to Thai, curly parsley, onions and so on.

I can't wait for the dirt to be workable so I can also sow my carrots and black string beans!
