I just planted 3x4 plants of tomatoes, I got a spray bottle to water them, just wondering how long would I start seeing shoots.

Good luck twitch. You may get some hybrid surprises. You said in another thread that the seeds came from a mate's tomatoes. If he had other varieties they may be cross pollinated.

the growing cage looks good, twitch71.
stopping the girls getting any green shoots that come up is the way to get plants.

I am in the middle of clearing out my banana bush to make a garden bed to transfer the tomatos in there, but I am still in the procress of thinking of away to keep the girls out.

I want to build a garden bed, off the ground because when it rains it floods my yard. so I have to raise it off the ground, I have been told to left it of the ground about 30cm but the girls can still jump up that far ( cart they )

I put plastic mesh around my garden beds to stop the birds getting in. My garden beds have 20cm high sides and I use 50cm high mesh. I peg the mesh down at the base with those U shaped pegs you use to pin down fake grass or weed mat. That stops the birds squeezing in under the bottom edge (although it's mainly the ducks that use this manouvre, not the chooks...). Anyway, I find that that does the trick.

Nice garden space 70%cocoa! Fwiw, tomatoes tend to self pollinate rather than cross. Good enough for home use for sure
