Tomatoes have been exposed to outdoors for about a week now. They are slightly stressed but they look like they are handling it ok. extended forecast into March looks good. Worst temps being 70/46, some slight rain. So last night and tonight I put the tomato plants in the ground.

These are 6 Heirloom tomatoes

  • 2 Chocolate Strips
  • 2 Sun Gold
  • 1 Riesentraube
  • 1 Royal Hillbilly

Other stuff going on

  • I realized I over planted a Garlic zone with Beets. Sprouts on top of garlic shoots. going to lose the beats because I can’t dig up the garlic without losing the beats, so the deeper planting wins.
  • Fertilized Fruiting Trees with Happy Frog Fruit and Flower mix 5-8-4
  • Put transplants in garden – Cabbage Basil, Pineapple Sage, and a Delicata Squash straight from the seedling tray with first true leaves, no hardening on that delicata hopefully it does ok.
  • I now see Fingerling Potato shoots reaching the surface. No Red La Soda shoots yet.
  • Lettuce, Carrots seedlings are up. Need to sow maybe carrot 2 seeds per spot next time, I sowed to many seeds and have to trim out the excess.
  • Bean are hitting the surface about a week later.
  • Earliglow June bearing variety strawberries have now set some flowers.
