I know I am a couple months ahead of you guys in Tn. I am growing Cherokee Purple and Celebrity. I put 1 CP per tub and usually 2 Celebrity, sometimes just 1. The red ornaments are to fool the birds. Put them out early, while the tomatoes are green. I think it helps some, mainly I keep them picked as soon as they start to turn before the birds spot them. I've sprayed them and my cucumbers twice with Daconil, first year I have used it. Any of you spray fungicides on your tomatoes? I am starting to get a few ripe tomatoes, had my first 2 BLT's today.
