Sprouting Out Tomato Seeds For This Year's Garden
There are lots of seeds still in their little damp paper towels getting sprouted. Yesterday I took the varieties that have sprouted and moved them into their little seedling pots.
I saved egg shells to use for this, we will see how well that works. We have a lot of calcium in our water, but places that don't might find this technnique useful to help prevent Blossom End Rot.
There are several previous posts about how to start tomato plants from seed. Click here to go to the first one, and when you get there, you'll see links to the others. :-)
We had thunder storms night before last, and this is a part of the country where the saying applies: "Thunder in February, Frost in April"! I never plant before Easter because of late frosts, but I always start a lot of extra plants in case my first planting freezes to death!
