Default How to Graft Tomatoes

So I've spent more time growing local food lately than breeding frogs. I recently put up my new article on my site on grafting heirloom tomatoes. If you're interested in trying it, check it out!

For a real space saver graft them on a potato and you will get nice fruit followed buy nice taders in the the fall and it's great for patio gardeners that grow plants in the soil bags.

I have not tried that yet, but I recently am trying the eggplant / tomato graft. Eggplant varieties generally aren't resistant to fusarium / verticillium, something that is rampant in my soil.

Dunno about grafting, but a couple years ago my hubby planted 200 tomatoes plants in the garden. I was picking so many tomatoes they were filling the bed of my Jeep Liberty. I spent every day until late into the night canning tomatoes. I told him if he ever planted that many again, I'd plant him in the tomatoes.

Never heard of grafting a tomato onto anything else. Interesting concept.

Man o man o man...

I did read this--I am going to have to re-read it and think about it... Always been my philosopy to grow what grows in one's soil! For example, where I live:

--Squash: we have the vine borer, so I only grow C. moschata;
--Other cucurbits: : WMV, so I grow tougher varieties like Sivan hybrid melons and resistant cuke varieties;
--Tomatoes, I grow who grows--black cherry, San Marzano, New Girl or Moonglow, Jaune Flamme, Mule team (oddly, no real success with "Bonny's Best"
--Peppers, I go for the most productive----Tollie's sweet, Golden Summer, Golden Treasure, Anchos, Hot Portugal; I have nothing to do with "California wonder" types...

I can do this without defaulting to Big Box hybrids like Celebrity and Juliet...
Also, I just wonder about the time issues for those of us with frogs, and dogs, and Avengers, and...

Promise I will re-read it again tomorrow!
