So, why the desire to try again with tomatoes? I just denounced that a few posts ago since growing tomato seeds without a greenhouse is about one of the most difficult gardening tasks I have tried. Well, I made a friend who invited me to use a small space in her greenhouse to grow my tomatoes. I was thrilled! I wanted to share my potting ratio and my starts, a few more pics in the coming weeks to share the progress too! Here is where I start, I use a plain old potting soil, a bag of vermiculite and a bag of perlite. These were mediums suggested to me a few years ago when I was so frustrated with the soil compaction that was occurring in my seed cells.
Here is the mix and I just swirl around by hand. (I am using an old lego tub but any plastic container would work)
So, now it is the waiting game. I expect to see little seedlings emerging in the next 7 days. I will put these in my friend's greenhouse when I get the emergence and we shall see if I have solved the tomato problem!
