>John,yes indeed you stumbled onto one of the real assests of the long seasons in the south.I had read about this and by accident I successfully did just what you described.I was working in the green house(I am in the far north not the south)trimming and pruning tom plants of course some of the cuttings escaped my notice and within a week I had rooted and growing plants on the green house floor.I transplanted those out and added to the others in the garden.Good for you and happy "pinching".Connie zone 5/6/7/
