I took some time and potted up the tomato transplants. I hadn't counted on all of them germinating and growing so strong. I'm very excited about this first round. I used a variety of left over peat pots and other gardening containers to pot them up
You can see that one mammoth Brandywine in the green pot below. That sucker grows while you watch him, I swear he does.
They all look so happy in their new homes. The temperatures should be in the 40's at night for the next week which is the same temperature as the basement they've been staying in, so I'm going to leave them outside for the next week or so, or until we get down to the 30's at night again. Which it will undoubtedly be before long.
My Big Momma and Yellow Pear that I planted last week still haven't germinated, so I've put those outside as well, hoping that the warm sun will help. I've run out of containers and students are sick of seeing me coming and standing over them while they finish their cottage cheese or yogurt at lunch so I can snag those containers to transplant the rest of the tomatoes in. Some have even taken to collecting their friends' containers and bringing them by. It's great!
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
