It’s time to transplant my Tomato seedlings from their nursery tray into individual pots. The seedlings have at least two of their larger, ‘real’ leaves and they are nice and short, green and vigorous.
I’m planting them well below the soil level that they were at in the tray. I’m trying to get them so deep in the pots that the soil almost reaches the lowest leaves (but not quite). This will encourage the plant to send out roots from the stem to make an even more sturdy and healthy plant.
All I need to do now is to fully harden them off and they will be ready to be planted in their final position in the garden.
I totally love growing Tomatoes. There are few other vegetables as satisfying to grow as Tomatoes. Now all I need to do is make sure they don’t get blight, like last year – hmmm…easier said than done.
Here’s my plan of attack (apart from the usual of removing the lower leaves on the plant)
If anyone has any more tips for keeping outdoor Tomatoes blight-free, let’s hear it. I need all the help I can get.
