Tomato planting update

Image
Moved the windbreak back a bit and pulled up what's left of the carrots. Left one in that was going 'to seed' to see if I can score some seed for next year. Some of the holes are a bit deep for some of the seedlings, so I'm experimenting with milk bottles with the tops and bottoms cut out to support the sides of the holes and contain the black bird tailings.

Planting tomato seedlings

Image
This week I opened up the tent and pulled out any seedlings that have grown to a decent height in the pot.  Read about the planting here...       I grabbed some poles out of a collection of bamboo canes saved from last year Digging deep holes for the seedlings. I want to bury them right up to the tips to improve root development. Moved and extended the pallet windbreak to protect the seedlings. The white butterflies have been out and about so once everything is planted, I mix up some BT and sprayed whatever is poking up above ground. click here if you don't see the video above
