More Tomato Transplants

The rest of the tomato plants needed to get out of their little cells and into the sunshine. These larger pots will give them enough space for their roots to expand in the next few weeks before they go into their permanent homes in the garden.

Our very kind neighbor, who happens to work in agriculture, gave us several flats of these 3inch pots. Not as big as the first ones we transplanted, but much easier to move around
(and less tippy).

120 more tomatoes! Hopefully we will find the space for most of these to get planted....if not, there's always Freecycle:)



Holy Smokes. Start a plant sell up your way. There's a clever gal at our farmers' market that sells individual tomato plants with much success. She has an album with photos and information on each variety she offers. Very organized.

WOW! That is a lot of tomatoes. I wish I lived near you, I would buy some for sure! Are you going to do a lot of canning? Good luck!

Maybelline, you almost lost me at 'organized'....I'm lucky if the plants are correctly identified...but that actually sounds like a good idea. I have a friend that has a booth selling eggs and veggies at the Visalia Farmers market; she'd probably be fine with my selling the plants. Thanks for the idea!

And yes Dollwood, I am planning on doing ALOT of canning....we go thru quite a bit of tomato sauce/salsa/catsup in the winter:)

Maureen, can I buy some paste tomatoes from you?
