Hopelessly devoted

To tomatoes, that is. If you knew me, you would know I spend too much time meditating on my tomato seedlings as they sit perched on my window sill.

A late start for me this year: I planted only 12 seeds on Marcy 28th of this year.  About ten days later, I had ten seedlings. tomato seedling 1
Not bad, considering I was being a bit brash. I don't have much room in my garden so even a 50%  germination rate would be swell.  I've got three Momotaro, one Black Krim, two Sungold, two Japanese Black Trifele, two black cherry.
Transplanted a week ago from the yogurt cups, they are in a larger container.
In the next few weeks, I'll harden them off.  I may plant them again in another yet larger container before planting into the ground.

I'll keep posting their progress.
