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!
That’s right – this Saturday is the annual Snohomish County Master Gardener plant sale! The sale features over 150 tomato varieties, plants donated by Master Gardeners (from their own gardens) and eight specialty nurseries.
I went to the sale last year and LOVED IT! To read what I got at the sale last year, click here.
The sale runs from 9-2 on Saturday only! Get there early so you get first pick of the plants.
