Tomato seeds


Tomato seeds

Here is my mini seed starter setup.....I have a heating pad between two trays and the seeds in egg cartons with a piece of Christmas Plastic wrap over the top to hold in the warmth as I switch the temp to low and med..to keep things warming up nicely..I feel like I am testing a babies bottle again!

I think my mom used them too...never have not thought of using them...lol..was a foreign idea to buy seed starting trays I finally did buy not so awfully long ago..but now do not have anymore...makeshift with the egg cartons is still fun...and they are biodegradeable too!

i was just thinking that Cat...7000 miles away..he he he

hang on a mo Clarice.....Julian says i'm wrong...sorry....well sort of...he feeds them a week solution when the next set of leaves come just to make them tough little buggers when we pot them up......and then NOT AT ALL untill they set the first fruits, or they will get too leafy...

Thanks for that Sandra, i've done mine before like you, so will try it Julians way,as i've only been doing tomatoes this last couple of years, so thanks for letting me know i was doing it wrong.

ok I thought I would give them a very light solution..will miracle grow work?
lol..I do love this.. :)

Cat i use tomatoe food as its cheaper, infact i feed everything with tomatoe food :o))

13 Feb, 2010

 

I will have to look for that Clarice..but I do have some Miracle Grow still..
I used to get those pellets called Osmicote..but it is so expensive..was good for the indoor plants..my husband liked it..

13 Feb, 2010

 

If you only have miracle grow i'd use that at first but they do need tomatoe food.
