Tomato Travels

Tomato starts set outside in the sun.The leggy tomato starts are loving the opportunity to be moved outside each day. Even though the nights are still cold and dipping into the high 20’s, the bright sun warms the side of the house above 50 degrees during the day.

Each day the plants are moved out once the temperature nears 50 and each evening moved back into the garage so they don’t freeze. These plants are very willowy from their extended house-bound stint. It’s important to move them back and forth each day to give them the opportunity to strengthen in the breeze and soak in the sunshine.

Several of the plants have blooms beginning to open and it is encouraging to see pollinators flying by to stop at the seedlings. I can imagine the taste of fresh tomatoes each time I move the plants back and forth.
