Seedlings

I’m not the only one impatient for spring.  The seedlings are getting bigger everyday.

Tomatoes on the right, peppers, brassicas and marigolds on the left.  The tomatoes are destined for the hoophouse, which is still experiencing nights below freezing, at least at thermometer height.  The tomatoes were planted March 8, along with leeks, onions and scallions.  The alliums are now residing happily in the hoophouse.  The tomatoes are getting big, but unfortunately it is still too cold in there for them.  Soon, I hope….

More brassicas, basil and marigolds.  These were all sown to celebrate Spring’s arrival the weekend of March 21 &22.

Parsley, also sown the weekend of March 21&22.  I had excellent germination of this batch of flat-leaf Italian parsley, my favorite.

    Your tomato seedlings are really giving the rest of the plants a run for their money with the speedy growth title :-) I too am hoping the weather cooperates for some hardening this weekend or next week.

    Oh those seedlings look great. I keep seeing people with tomato plants that are taking over. This year I decided six weeks would be enough and I plant in the middle of May, so my seedlings are tiny with just their seed leaves. I haven’t even started my eggplant yet. Soon.
