That's a gorgeous tomato patch, John. I got a really late start this year with my seeds and had to go out an buy some transplants. The ones I started are just going in this weekend.
This year, I'm trying a product called Neptune's Harvest, which is a combination fish/kelp foliar fertilizer. My neighbor, who works at a garden center (and is a convert from chemical-based fertilizers to all-organic), told me it's the fertilizer she likes best. I've been spraying weekly for the last 3 weeks, and the plants seem to love it.
Next year, I'm going to try soaking the seeds in a very diluted solution of it - it's supposed to help wake them up.
I really like that soil block maker, and will check it out for next year. I finally broke down and bought some Texas Tomato Cages - hellishly expensive at $160 for 6 of them, but they are 6 ft high, and made of heavy gauge galvanized steel. People swear by them.
