It's here, another year filled with vegetables, fruit, and other stuff!

The tomatoes are up, I planted 3 seeds per cell to be sure I was covered. 36 seeds planted.........34 germinated! Now I have a problem.................I have very rarely culled a seedling in my life, I used to have enough room to cover it, not so much now.........what a dilema.

ACHOCHA! Here too, I planted 12 saved seeds that were 7 or 8 years old. Ten germinated!

I took this tray down today from the top shelf where it resides. Near the bottom of the photo a Red Dragonfruit seed has germinated and at the top is a new Passion Fruit seedling and just below and to the right of that is a Passion Fruit loop. I know, you're thinking "no big deal", but these seeds were sown on October 22, 2020. The last one germinated about 3 weeks ago.

Is there a special reason you start the tomato plantlets inside instead of outside? Just curious...
 
They grow much faster before plant out under controlled conditions and are stronger/more vigorous. This way they have a fighting chance when they go on the final container. Although we have super weather here, we also have super pests above and below ground. I have found out that even my container plants were susceptible to the below ground nastys.
