Monday my almanac said it was a good day for planting so I worked in the greenhouse planting seeds of tomato, peppers and eggplants. All of these seed need to be started about 8 to 10 weeks before you plan on planting them in your garden. Most years we can start planting our gardens in late March.
I had pinched off some suckers from the tomato plants and planted them to start more tomato plants. They are still standing up like little soldiers but they were also on the heat mat. Guess it was just enough heat to protect them. One little stem broke from a pepper and I planted that to see if it will root like tomato stems do.
Don't forget this summer when you pinch off the suckers to plant them. You can usually get a second crop of tomatoes before winter hits. They are free plants and grow much faster than those started from seed.
