On Saturday, I started my seeds. I have an unusual number of tomatoes, four different varieties. As a gal grown up on the east coast, I need my summer tomatoes. I have heard from others that the tomato is a lost cause here, but, I feel that I must have some. Outside, not in a greenhouse, but a real true tomato, outside.
So, here are my four varieties:
- Kibits Ukranian Tomato – Amishland Seeds
- Tess’ Land Race Tomato – Amishland Seeds
- Arbason F1 Tomato – High Mowing
- TM862 Stupice Tomato – Territorial Seed
I also planted some peppers, broccoli and cucumbers. Here is my seed starting setup. I have a piece of rigid foam under the heat mat, and a grow light to assist my little seedlings.
Here is everything, ready to go! I have a big box warehouse brand sprayer bottle for watering the seedlings once they get going. This allows a soft water stream that will not disrupt the seedling’s growth. I also have the light on a timer.
So, I have started, have you? Please let us know in the comments below!
