Now the plants in the greenhouse are ready for planting out and I doubt if there will be any more frost now so I guess its going to be a few getting planted each day.
It always thought that this would be the easy part but right now I've changed my mind about that.
When I planted the seeds /bought the plug plants I thought I knew where I was going to put everything but now with losing many plants with the frost I'll need to change a few things.
So this summer I guess I'm going to get a surprise because I'm just going to plant them where there is a space needing to be filled.

One question I'd like to ask If I take seeds from a fresh tomato NOW do you think if I planted them now that they would grow now or would I need to keep the seeds until next year?

Somehow I thought that you might have to let them dry. I did a search on Google and came up with this site amongst others:

It says to dry them. I guess you could experiment with a few seeds right out of a fresh tomato. Good luck.

Thanks Gil

Cut the tomato in half and scoop out the seeds and pulp and place in a bowl or cup. Or, squeeze the pulp and seeds out. Set this aside somewhere so the seeds can go through a fermenting process. A layer of mold will develop on the seeds. This process can destroy many seed-borne diseases that could affect the next generation of plants. After the fermenting, you need to wash the seeds well.

Now that's a new one for me - I'd never thought about that before.
I've still got one of the tomatoes I'd like to grow so I'll try this. Today I've 'planted' the top part of a fresh pineapple I did grow one before but the past 6/7 times I've tried nothing has happened jsut cant figure out what I'm doing different.
