Default Tomatoes transplanted

Eighteen seedlings were transplanted today. Mulched, caged, watered.
These were "home starts" grown indoors under a fluorescent grow-light.
We had a bad experience with seedlings purchased from a Big Box
retailer and won't make that mistake again.

My childbride buys annual flowers for our flower boxes from
a Big Box store. But that's it. Everything else comes from
nurseries.

Tomatoes are fruits. This year I'm planting in containers
so I can three of each, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, and Habeneros,
in for the winter and see if I can get a second harvest under
my hydroponic grow light.

Reason we still direct seed is that our direct-seeded tomatoes harvest earlier than the transplanted ones Bill[_13_] Gardening 9 06-05-2008 04:37 AM
