Tomato Babies

During the time that Gpa was sick.  I took a moment to plant some tomato seeds.  I didn’t know that I’d be a couple of weeks early.

I had helped with transplanting seedlings last year so I got three cups filled with dirt, made three rows in each cup and put what I thought was 3-4 in each row.

I must not have because 25 or more plants came up in each cup. So I went to the community garden and divided up 40 of them.  I went to get a couple of clear containers to use as a green house.

I feel like an irresponsible mother.  The number of tomato babies is overwhelming and I want to go see the grandbabies!  I’m going to have to get a babysitter!

They are outside in the sunshine, under the containers.  They seem to be happy.  Exif_JPEG_422

    Better start collecting recipes asap – ketchup, salsa, etc.! My neighbour harvested about 60 kg of tomatoes last year, and was desperately giving them away 🙂

      Looking at Tomato recipes is what got me in trouble in the first place!

        Aha! But isn’t it satisfying watching the babies grow? And that delicious fragrance …

        yes, and I do hope to donate some of the plants to the community garden tomato sale in March. I check the babies several times a day. Good thing I don’t have witnesses!
