I know, title is super corny. I couldn't help myself.
I potted up 62 of my tomato plants after making some newspaper pots thanks to Rebecca over at Rebecca's Urban Farm Blog. I modified it a little bit, because I did not want to mess with getting them all wet, so I just taped the side and the bottom with some masking tape. I guess eventually the masking tape will get loose from getting wet, but it's done now.
It was nasty and rainy today, probably the coldest it has been in three weeks. It was a good day for me to get some of these done.
me of these done.
It's kind of intimidating knowing that I still have some 30 tomato plants to pot up, and something like 60 peppers to pot up eventually too! My friends who are getting 2/3 of these peppers and tomatoes are going to have to find some
windowsills for these plants because my homemade shelves can only hold so much!
After I got all of my tomatoes back on the shelves I tried to put my new shop lights back up, but unfortunately I'm still having issues with the lights. They are super touchy, and most of the time I can only get one of the two bulbs to turn on. I haven't figured it out yet, and I probably need to call Home Depot and see if they have any suggestions or see if I can return the lights... I just can't seem to find that receipt.
In other news, my radishes have sprouted! I took a few pictures two days ago where the rest of my outdoor seedlings are too!
And last but not least, here's a picture of Eleanor hanging out.
