Spare Tomato Starts?
Since our great transplant evening last week we've lost about 18
tomatoes. It's normal to lose a few to transplant shock, but
unfortunately the little plants that couldn't reach above the plastic
cover were beaten up by the plastic on some of the windy days. If you
have any spare tomato starts please bring them to the garden session
tomorrow evening and we'll get them in the ground! After planting (with
roots fully under the soil and plants thoroughly watered with a gentle
watering can), place a few rocks on the plastic to keep it from moving
too much. (If you have spare peppers we'd plant a few of those too!)
With the upcoming heat plants should start taking off!
