It's that time of year again when ordering and starting seeds is on everyone's mind. This year I decided to try a few new veggies in my garden. One of those new veggies is this gorgeous Red Lightening tomato. I ordered my seeds from Burpee Seed and can't wait to start them.
Red Lightening Tomatoes aren't early tomatoes. In fact, they take 82 days to mature, but I couldn't resist these beauties. I intend to start them early and get them in the ground at the earliest possible date (wouldn't an early spring be nice after months of freezing weather and mounds of snow?). I'm thinking season extenders, such as floating row cover or a tunnel over my raised bed, are in order to bring these tomatoes to fruit before the fall frost approaches.
If you are interested in growing Red Lightening Tomatoes, there is still plenty of time to order the seeds and start them inside for this year's garden. Check out Burpee Seed for more information on Red Lightening Tomatoes.
Until next time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
