I don't even want to hear about it. just do it. Easy as can be, It works. My sister can kill anything and she made this work.
Unfortunately most all tomatoes you can find for sale are grown specifically for "looks". They are harvested green and chilled to near freezing, then stored. When there is a market for them they are "gassed" to start the ripening process and put out to sale. They might be pretty, but are seldom fit to eat.
Some folks raise tomatoes in winter in a "hothouse"....they can be very good. But not always.
Its best to raise your own or buy from someone who raises their own.
We used to raise our own and put them up in jars (canned)- I remember one year I had 75 mature plants bearing fruit at the same time- that was a bunch. Since we have gotten older we no longer have a garden- but have been thinking about it. maybe one day?

Well, I guess I got lucky, these she bought were beef steak tomatoes and they tasted even better than they look.

I just got two six packs of starter plants. One six pack celebrity and one big boy. I potted them in one gallon pots. They should be out growing the pots about time to go in the ground. They didn't have any roma or grape cherry 100. Still early yet. Plants just hitting the store.
Makin me hungry. My tomatoes ain't turned yet and I am craving them every day. It reminds me of my youth but I have big red tomatoes every year out of my garden. Knock wood! That samich sounds awesome!
Usually I'm a salsa making fool. This was last year's planting. We used up the last of these plants last April.
Besides being lazy, a lengthy cold wet spring this threw me off this year, so none were planted.
