My grafted tomato plants showed up at my door yesterday, way later than I thought they would. In fact when I didn't get them I got to thinking I never did order them.

Anyway I had already started regular tomato plants in my Earthboxes and almost all of them are now 1 1/2 feet tall.

I'm going to have to remove 4 plants and plant the grafted ones in their place, they are about 4 inches tall now but if things work out like I think they will the grafted plants will soon over take the regular plants.

I'm out of Earthboxes and now I have to find some other kind of contanter for the regular plants or throw the plants away

Here's a good article on the grafted plants.

When I get some suckers big enough to remove, pot, and get growing. I'm going to try grafting an heirloom onto root stock from a sucker using one of my hybrids as rootstock. just for fun and learning. It'll be no cost other than graft tape and I won't have to use or buy any seed. A good way to experiment without losing much.
