Tomato Seedlings

So far…so good! The tomato seedlings are up and looking very healthy. I will probably pot them up into larger pots in a few weeks but for now they look happy and well.

I tried a few different varieties of tomato seeds this year, all of which are certified organic.

Heirloom Tomato Variety. A large orange beefsteak, sweet, resistant to cracking. One of the better flavors of all the orange tomatoes, meaty with few seeds. Vigorous and prolific.


Heirloom Variety. A standard red tomato, 2-3 inches across, spherical with great flavor. Crack resistant, sweet and produces a good yield.  Good for canning, slicing and salads.

Ideal Tomato

A red early tomato, 2-3 inches across. Tasty and prolific, cold hardy.

Black Russian

Heirloom Variety. Black tomato, rich, deep flavor, a blend of sugar and acid. Medium sized growing on compact plants.

The amaryllis is moving along as well and should open over the weekend. I never tire of growing this plant, it is just too much fun to watch. I’m also determined to keep the bulb in good shape for next year. I previously wrote a blog about this and if you have an amaryllis in bloom check out that post, growing amaryllis, so you can save yours for re-blooming too.
