The beginning of my 2017 garden has emerged. The tomato seeds that I planted last weekend sprouted after only 4 days underground in the starter greenhouse. I feel as if I definitely did something right there as it generally takes 7 to 10 days for tomato seeds to germinate. Today, I purchased two dozen peat pots and some potting soil and replanted 18 of my strongest seedlings. In a day or two, I’ll replant my next strongest half-dozen. That should give me a solid 20 to 24 plants to choose from when it’s time to get outside if everything goes as planned until then.
