The tomato seedlings planted in January are outgrowing their little six-packs so we've started the process of transplanting them to bigger pots.
Decided to transplant a flat of 72, mostly because that's all the shelf space I have under the grow-lights. Some will probably be going straight into the ground this week as our expected temps. are pretty encouraging (80 degrees by Friday).
Mixed up some potting soil with a bit of leftover seed-starting medium....
...and planted some in picnic cups, while others went into saved nursery pots.
This year I shall try to keep tags in their pots to avoid the seemingly inevitable mystery tomatoes.
Steve and I have started a new undertaking towards sustainable living....'renting' land in exchange for veggies. Our home garden is simply not big enuf to support our family of 6 very hungry people and with several trees in the yard to help us get thru the 'hell' we call summer in the Central Valley of California we can only cultivate so much of our city lot ...is a town of 10,000 officially a city?
Follow us on our adventures in gardening in our lovely neighbor Joyce's yard. Our desire is to become strangers to the checkout gals at the grocery store.
