We’ve Got Tomatoes Up The Wazoo

Since we had such poor tomato germination last year (I suspect using the heat pad inside the house had something to do with it), I sowed multiples in each pot this year. To my surprise, they all germinated. Then I had a hard time thinning the extras and figured my friends would take a couple.

In all, we have over 70 tomato seedlings. Today they graduated into their own pots with potting soil – a lot of work. That’s a big move from their cramped quarters in the sterile coconut mulch I sowed them in.

A little ridiculous.

Let’s hope the extras find homes soon since now they’re going to GROW!

  2. How lovely!
    I have 3 varieties this year & transplanted them to larger pots 2 weeks ago already. I’m hoping to ‘control’ excessive growth for the next month as spring is dreadfully late in arriving & the greenhouse just won’t be suitable til May 1st at this rate. Last year I transplanted the ‘maters into the greenhouse the middle of April – I won’t be so lucky this year…

    Do you ever have issues with those peat pots growing mold? I don’t use them anymore because of that – which just might mean I kept them too moist &/or air movement wasn’t enough &/or cramped quarters…

    Angela, I will take some Early Girls, Cherry and Romas if you have any extras. I could get them Easter weekend.

  4. I winter sow everything and my tomatoes come up fairly early–at the end of April, which is early in Michigan. So I think they actually do prefer a cooler soil.
