Well today was the day to finally transplant the tomatoes. The past few weeks it’s been MORE then warm enough during the day, but at night we’ve been getting a few frosts here and there.
It is almost June right?
Ridiculous, I hate living in the mountains.
I got most of them planted out, but alas, I’ve been fighting some viral thing, and got a little tired and had to call it quits before they were all actually in their new homes. Tomorrow the rest of them will go in, along with the squash and the peppers.
It’s become painfully clear that I don’t have anywhere near enough containers for the rest of tomatoes or the peppers, or stakes for the tomatoes for that matter.
All the tomatoes that did get planted got a little collar made out of the top of the plastic beer cups that they get potted up into in between the seedling and proper transplant phase. I’ve never actually had a problem with cutworms, but I’m always scared I will so they always get the plastic collar treatment.
I’m too tired to take a photo of any of the transplanted tomatoes, so instead you get a picture, taken a few days ago from my front porch. It’s moments after a storm passed that you can still see working its way down the valley.
