You got that right. As for saving money, I tried that once. By the time I bought the tomato plants, added organic soil, bought fertilizer and pesticide it was cheaper to buy the tomatoes. In season, tomatoes are very cheap if you buy them like I do from farmers' markets.

They're not cheap here, no matter how you do it ... and homegrown (or farmers market) certainly always taste better, but this is only an option a couple short months of the year for many of us. Northern climates are not necessarily hotbeds of tropical growing conditions. :)
