More Baby Pictures

Posted by Picasa

Here are pictures of the tomato babies I picked for my garden. They were taken from the nine cell packs and repotted into 4" pots. Next to them are two plants I bought from the hardware store. They are Russian Black Krim and Old German. I have never grown Old German before. The tomato babies include two that are new for me - Avivvi and Ladino di Panacchio. They are from the seed exchange hosted by Monica over at Faerie Garden. Now all I need are two Celebrities, a cherry, Green Zebra, and Yellow Pear.

A note on the container greenhouses. They work fantastic. No plants have burned. The Russian Black Krim and Old German were transplanted from 4" pots to 6" pots and placed directly in the larger container on February 24th. The Russian Black already has buds.

Here is the list.
Early Girl
Better Boy
San Marzano
Ladino di Panacchio
Old German
Black Krim
Yellow Pear (if I can find it)
Green Zebra (if I can find it)

I have a 27 foot row of raised bed for these plants. If I plant 24 inches apart they will all fit. It will be my wall of tomatoes.

Which tomatoes are you planning on growing this year?


  1. They look great. You must be so proud. My tomatoes are still just little seedlings, but they're putting on a second set of leaves. Yay! Looks like yo'll have lots of great stuff this season. Have fun.

  2. You are one proud mama Debbie ! Since I don't really do veggies , I have to live that experience through you girl ! LOL

  3. Looking good! I just love baby pics- don't you just want to squeeze their little cheeks, if they had them? Happy gardening!

  4. Don't know. Usually don't grow vegetables. I know that's crazy. I love the herbs so that they take up my available space. But I may surprise even myself. I am wondering if we might see an occasional stray sock end up in that big raised bed of yours... Assuming of course the monkeys make it through the school year without incident despite negligent driving of uppity parents.

  5. Thanks Gardeness.

    Joy, you and Brenda, not lovin the veggie plants:)

    Yep Tessa.

    Brenda, there is a cowboy hat in the spinach right now. The bad drivers have moved away from my street and around the corner. Apparently, I made raised enough hell that they decided I wasn't worth it.

  6. Oh those look so good! I can't wait to be able to pick fresh tomatoes from our garden!!!!

  7. Oh man! Tomato time already?!?! I completely forgot about that. And yours look so lovely too. I feel so behind. ; )


  8. WooHoo! You go gardening girl! I am going to the Garden Show in Dallas today; tripping into the big city!

  9. I love seeing baby pictures. They are so cute! We are planting a lot more varities of tomatoes this year, I hope they all make it.

  10. Nola, Hope you had a great time at the show. I had to skip it this year.

    Shala, I am sure your tomatoes will do just fine:)

  11. Aw, the babies are so cute and growing! I've not tried those varieties either, but I've sown more and am waiting and waiting and waiting...
