Remember the tomato seeds I started here. This is what they look like now.
Yesterday I transplanted some of the plants that were growing two to a pot. I also added more dirt around all the plants. Tomatoes are one of the few plants that will grow roots all along their stems so adding some more dirt will encourage more root growth. In Saskatchewan we are about two to three weeks away from planting these outside still. I will let them get used their new homes and grow some more roots and in about a week I will start taking them outside for a while each day to harden them off. Then they should be ready to plant in a couple of weeks. With the nice weather we are finally having I can't wait to get into the garden.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
