I spent a pleasant afternoon pricking out these little tomato seedlings. The first two leaves are seed leaves. Then, when the next two true leaves start to show I like to transplant them while they are still small. Only handling by the leaves and NEVER holding the stem, I potted these up right up to the top of the stem so just the leaves were showing. This means that more roots will form along the stem giving the plant a bigger root system to help it to grow.
I always need lots of new plant labels this time of year, so I made my own. This is a 4pint plastic milk bottle.
Makes dozens of plant labels.
Meanwhile, under a dripping tap on a North facing wall, my Wasabi
plant is really enjoying life at the moment. Putting on lots of strong, green leaves.
