Update - So I've been checking on my tomatoes daily like most and I discovered yesterday that something had eaten one of the branches off my earlygirl perhaps a raccoon? . Today I found something has been chopping down on some of the leaves on my brandywine. So I improvised with what I had laying around to make some sort of barrier for what ever animal is doing this. Basically I just took 6 post stuck them in the ground then ran a wire around them 3 times to make a wire fence pretty much.
Update - So I just transplanted the tomatoes I picked up yesterday, the one I forgot its strain turns out to be a BrandyWine and the other is an Early Girl. Where I live the soils actually pretty good so, I just dug a hole about a foot deep and foot wide then back filled it with a mixture of homemade compost, topsoil, blood & bone meal & Canadian peat moss. Hit them with some water and proceed to let them soak up the sun!
Brandywine pics: 1-3.

Hey there guys. Just figured id start the journal since the seeds have been in soil for 3 days and first signs of growth should be starting soon!
Alright so heres the details.
I got 5 coco fiber pots and placed 3 seeds in each pot to give me the best chance at succeeding. I then placed the pots with the seeds into a mini greenhouse which should give the seeds a nice warm, moist environment for them to thrive. I keep them in the shade during the hottest part of the day
