Many of us have stuck tomato starts in every sunny, spare corner of the house. Growing tomatoes in Montana can be tough but Montana State University can help with a FREE digital brochure.

I usually cheat a little by purchasing tomato starts at a reliable, local vendor. This year my friend Kathleen gave me 7 healthy starts in different varieties. I've already killed two of the plants. We'll see how many make it to June 10th.
