Has anyone on this list taken cuttings of a tomato plant, rooted them and
brought them inside for the winter?  Seems to me it would be faster than
planting a seed.  Do you take the cutting back to the "trunk"?  Trim off
any "heel"?  How about taking chile stem cuttings?  Some of my chiles are
larger than I want to bring inside.  I'm digging up and bringing in about
4, but I have some Ajis that are about 4 feet tall and just now budding.  I
think they're already two years old.  Sigh.  Margaret
