Earlies - first day out!

Couldn't be more perfect day for the first day outside for my early varieties! Overcast most of the day, evening sun for the past hour, so they are "filtered sun bathing"

Exactly 3 weeks post germination today, and got their first dose of mild fish fertilizer last night:

And a bit more sun every day for a week :flower:

Looks like you are missing a few there bro. 8) :P

Looking good though I just dropped seed today, I'm way behind I feel. But I am trying NOT to be so early this year and see how that goes.

And another perfect day to harden them off - mixed sun/clouds...

Missing a few - lol nah... Only 6 varieties into the buckets (1 for me, 1 spare):

Noire de Crimee
Danko
Early Treat
Taxi
Grub's Mystery Green
Siberian Pink Honey

Two experimentals - Danko with different feeding/addition regiments, and one of those multifloral F5 I've been growing and stabilizing (that we use to make sweet preserves, kinda like a gooseberry). My mother found a seedling sometime back in the middle of nowhere. Last two years they have shown no variations, maybe I did get lucky afterall :roll:

Your seeds are going into the seeding tray next week, for the 2nd wave of tomatoes, and you know how much I'm looking forward to those, specially Big Cheef and Spudayellow Strawberry :wink:

D

Still sun bathing, and definitely getting stronger...

And today (this side are Danko, with their typical Eastern European oxheart wispy foliage):

Let's just hope that the weather continues to be frost free...
