Tomatoes or Trees?
When we started our tomato and pepper seedlings on March 31st, a coworker said to me that we were starting them a little late. (Maybe a tad, but there’s really no reason to plant them outside before early May, so the timing was right.)
Anyway, I think the tomatoes heard the comment and took offense! They are growing rapidly, to the point where I am forced to raise the height of the lights a couple times each week. I did give them a quarter-rate of fertilizer in the water last Thursday, and they are looking good, just tall! I really want to prevent them from getting too spindly, which is hard to do indoors under lights. (I miss having a greenhouse to grow plants!)
Looking at the extended forecast, it looks like it will certainly be warm enough overnight to put the “children” outside…but I don’t want to let them out from under my indoor TLC! After all, they are only3 weeks old! Check back later this week to see what we decide to do. (It’s almost like a soap opera, isn’t it?)
