I’m simply amazed. Almost a month ago, I planted heirloom tomato seeds with a (very) liberal, healthy dose of GUARDED hope that they would actually sprout. Well, they did indeed sprout. And they kept going. My experiment was working. Some soil, some unseasonably warm, sunny days (thank you, Climate Change?!), regular waterings and voila! Real tomato plants grew in our sun room. In northern Michigan. And the fat lady sings indeed.
So, as you can see, they got so big that I had to transplant them today. I know, right?! Aren’t you amazed, too? Whew.
I was so thrilled with the whole idea of it all that I had to wear my gardening galoshes while I transplanted them. Silly, but fun! (Hey, this Mamma doesn’t get out much.)
So I gingerly moved the seedlings to their own pots… Do you think they will miss being closer together? They’ve been together since the womb. What say you, dear readers?
My hands even smell like tomatoes still. It’s lovely.
So here’s the question of the day. I really didn’t think these would do very well so now what will I do with so many tomato plants? I suppose it’s a good problem to have… and I’m probably jumping the gun here because there will probably be some loss moving forward… but I’m thinking that I better revise my raised bed plan to just have a whole bed devoted to tomatoes. Bliss!
