Tomatoes in my SFG... spacing... 1 square vs 9 squares

I've been figuring out my spacial needs for my SFG.

I want to can lots of sauce this year... so I have 40 Romas growing from seed.

Mel's book says that bush type or "determinate" tomato plants take 9 square feet! Shoot... that's a lot of space!

Mel says that he only plants vining or "indeterminate" varieties for spacial reasons... vining tomato plants only take 1 square per plant!!!

Vining tomato plants include: Burpee's Fourth of July Hybrid, Early Girl, Celebrity, Beefsteak, Big Boy, Brandywine... Cherry and Heirloom varieties.

So... I have 40 Romas... bush type... that each need 9 square feet of room... whew... OK... PANIC!!!!

  2. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites
    for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
