First I'd like to thank those of you who responded to my request of yesterday 
for information about amish/heirloom tomatoes.  

As I said in my post yesterday, I'm a novice gardener & from "watching" the 
tomato listserve I know that you all are truly experts, but you were so kind 
yesterday I'd like to ask another question. 

I have three tomatoes growing in containers that are already producing fruit, 
but I fear that the containers I have them in are too small.  My question 
is.....dare I try to transplant them into larger containers at this stage or 
should I just leave well enough alone for this season & learn for next.  And, 
is it too late to plant tomatoes now?  (not from seed, of course, but already 
started plants that can be purchased many places).  I live in zone 7, central 

Thanks again.  I'm learning an awful lot & am thouroughly enjoying my venture 
into gardening.
