|On day two the cuttings are starting to stand up straight - they look good!|
I've taken 5 cuttings from my German Johnson plant (which hasn't done all that much this summer, I might add) and I'll see if it will do better this way. I don't think my Juliette tomato is an heirloom or I'd try it with that one, its done so well all summer long.
I might take a cutting or two from the Brandywine and Cherokee, too. Once I pot them up in bigger pots I'll use this magic tomato food recipe that I used this spring - I think it really helped my garden potted tomato plants! I'll let you know how it goes!

Trying something new....
So I read on one of the gardening blogs that I read about propagating heirloom tomatoes from cuttings in the fall. She says she takes cuttings and is able to have a whole new crop of tomatoes in her greenhouse during the winter, so I'm going to give it a try.
