Big day for seedlings..tiny tots started in Root Riot left over from last year. I'm keeping this simple..spare cups maybe 8oz, 2 seeds per Root Riot pod, plant light, heat matt, and big portion of patience. Somebody in my house who shared their bad cold with me also shared his seeds with me...so I started some of those too...more to come. 55 today with clouds. At least he is not trash talking me this year. Told him to get on board the train and help me!

Christopher, the IL 2nd place GIANT TOMATO 1st time grower...ACCESSORIZED!! Over Labor Day, I went camping and he was volunteered to carry out the "piggies" feed schedule. Upon my return, I heard bickering about how exhausting this was and how much each one need!! Bicker, bicker, bicker I don"t see any of your small fry this year, so no household competition... well, Alright.
