Is it crazy to start tomato plants (from seeds) now?

cimui | Nov 18, 2009 05:49 AM

I just moved to an apartment with an area with so much sun and warmth it feels like a greenhouse. I'd love to take advantage of this and grow container herbs and ... tomatoes? I've poked around online and know there are some tomato varieties that do alright in containers, but have read a lot less about whether starting seedlings in the autumn / winter, without grow lights is just a recipe for disaster. Any thoughts? (Also, if you think it'll work, any recommendations for which varieties to plant? I've been looking around on the Park Seed website... so many choices!)

Thanks, Garden 'Hounds!
