Seedling Update

The beans and peas I planted on the 17th have simply exploded out of their seeds – what incredible energy! I love checking on my little ones several times a day and literally watching them grow. I took these photos only a few days ago and the seedlings are already twice as big as you see here. I also planted three trays of tomato plants – three different varieties. They are still in their little plastic wrap hothouses, but the others are ready for more exposure. The zucchini, not really shown here, are still emerging, so they are still mostly under their little budget greenhouse. I read that tomato plants like heat to germinate, so they are not set up on their own little electric heating pad for a few hours a day. It seems to be working – I’ll let you know how they fare! If they all come up that means I will have 36 tomato plants – a few others on Twitter are interested in a seedling exchange, so I hope that the toms make it!

Aren’t they pretty?
