Cam, those look fantastic. It's ridiculous how fast tomatoes grow!! Most of the ones I just started on the 29th sprouted in 48 hours! I was like and then I was like !!!

Pots, those are gorgeous tomatoes! Spring is always so tricky, isn't it!?! We gear ourselves up for that one weekend and then when the weather doesn't cooperate it throws everything off!

Thinking of transferring to cup today..



Roots looking good, not winding up yet. Maybe I'll wait another week



Another one.. This one looks to have a better root system. Same Tomato seed/plant. Cuor Di Bue which I got directly from Italy but can be found on line.

Cam, your plants really do look fantastic. I'm surprised your roots aren't wound yet - mine tend to get that way long before I think they should be transferred up. I think different varieties grow a bit differently, too..

Can't wait to see what else you have going on as we get further into spring!

April 9, 2015 quick update. Burning firewood like its February. Temps struggling past 40s for 3 days and dipping to freezing at night.

I really like the Jiffy seed starting soil vs Miracle Grow. Roots and Plants are healthier.



Before the transfer, this is how they looked. Seed put in March 14th. (2 weeks ago)





Transfer has been made and they better get used to the cups till Mid May. maybe early May is weather cooperates!



Peppers can use a nice upgrade although not needed yet..




Peppers new home too.



Eggplant finally coming up. Gees. 2 weeks to germinate.

Cucumber up in 4 days. Might be too soon for that.
