Tomato Seedlings Are Growing Up

April 19, 2012

After several weeks under the lights in the seedling incubation unit of The Gardener’s garage, the young plants have begun the transition to solar light.

The wee ones now spend a few hours each day under the cloth covering out on the driveway as they are hardened to outdoor conditions.  Mind you, conditions in Southern California are not what one would call harsh.  Nevertheless, sunburn can ensue if you simply plunge the young plants into the great outdoors without a care.

Varieties  include Speckled Roman, Big Rainbow, Giant Belgium, and the ever popular Brandywine.

These plants will yield the abundance of heirloom tomatoes destined for salads and the full range of preservation methods.  We will follow them along the way.
