My inside garden awaits their new home outside

Category: my greenhouse | Posted: Wed Apr 16, 2008 6:10 pm

These pictures will show my 3 shelves I use to start my seed. Then I have put them into cups. On the second shelf back right hand corner, I have cherry tom. already up. I have planted more, so to date I have 150 tom plants plus. Other plants on these shelves are flowers and herbs. Also on the second shelf you'll see on top of the light are seedlings using the baggy method which seems to be working this year.

My lighting on the shelves are grow lights I use for a few hours at nite before I head to bed. Then they're turned off and they'll have approximatly 7 hours of darkness. Here's another angle.

I am still been busy putting up more baggy's with seed, can't wait till the little ones sprout.
I just cleaned up the greenhouse today. Will get a picture of that soon for another blog.

Ok then, Petunia......now we're talking! :-)
This is a great-looking set-up. Your arrangement lools supurb. You can never have too many tom seedlings, I always say. I have alot too, but I already know that I will not be able to use them al, I shall just choose the strongest ones and give the rest away. I already have some takers lined-up.
These foto postings are a feast for the eyes. Everything looks well-organized.
You are really off to a great start, Petunia. Now that you have amazed us with your accomplishments so far, you really must keep us up to date with the seedlings' progress. ;-)

Thanks all for the nice comments. I will take some plants to a roadside sale we have here. I hoping to sell some. I do have atleast 2 orders to fill already.
we did can quit a few last year. Will probably be able to the same again this year. We do use the toms in chicken, stews, speggetti, chili, ect....
