Tomatoes ready for final planting

Our tomatoes have now reached the size where they are ready for growing on. Three of each of the four varieties that we are growing will be planted in grow-bags in the poly-tunnel at home and the remainder, about 24, will be planted outdoors on allotment 18. 
Last summer we covered the allotment tomato bed with black membrane and planted the tomatoes in holes cut into the membrane. It was totally weed free for the whole growing year, and so we will be repeating that growing technique again this summer.
The tomatoes that we are growing this year are Brandywine Pink, Moneymaker, San Marzanno, and Suncherry Premium.
