My tomatoes are going great guns @Jason. I usually plant all my vegies from seed but this year I cheated just a tiny bit and bought 3 tomato seedlings which helped me get a head start. The ones I bought were Apollo, Mighty Red and Grosse Lisse which are pictured in the tomato cages but I also sowed Roma and yellow pear as well as a "mystery" cherry tomato which our son saved seeds from some store bought tomatoes. We call those ones "surprise" tomatoes.
Now that the danger of frosts is over I have removed the plastic tree guards and surrounded them with a 4-sided tomato cage.
I also have some Grosse Lisse and Siberian tomatoes which are in "air pruning" pots which will be planted out this week. These pots help develop strong root growth and prevents root circling.

As always, your post is enlightening, & fun.
I'm dead keen to hear how your son's mystery seeds go, the ones that he rescued from store bought tomatoes. I'm not sure of where I heard it, but there's a suggestion that they're genetically modified, & can't be resown.
I will keep you updated on the progress of the "mystery" tomatoes @Andy_Mann. I am also curious as to what they are and if they do fruit, what they taste like. Our son said that the reason that he saved the seeds was because his wife LOVED them. I had to laugh though - he brought them to me and asked ME to grow them............
They look really healthy. Well done @Annette. Looking forward to seeing your harvest.
