Maria, 34 years old
I am a novice gardener, so I paid attention to the early variety “Volgograd pink”. I was very impatient to grow this miracle with my own hands, so I planted seeds in the fall in a flower pot. It turned out quite easy, and the first tomato is a good proof of this. Now I will definitely try to plant in the ground.
