The tomato babies are growing nicely on top of they dryer again this year. I received a very nice sewing light for my birthday. I promptly turned that into a grow light for the little tomatoes. As soon as they have their true leaves (the second set that look different from the first set, but will look like all of the future leaves) come in, I will pot them up in 4 and six inch pots. Then we will start the take them outside, bring them inside dance until April 1st, when they will be planted in the garden or saved for the KCMGA plant sale April 14th.
This year I am growing these tomatoes from seed:
1. Yellow Pear
2. Cherokee Purple
3. San Marzano
5. Ladano di Pannichio
6. Turks Mutt
7. Gajo de Melon
8. A mystery tomato because I forgot to write one down again this year. Durn.
I will probably buy a Green Zebra, a Celebrity, an Early girl and a Better Boy plants to round out the roster.
I would like to thank Monica for some of the seeds she shared with me in this years seed swap.
