Several weeks ago, before winter began for the second time, I had mentioned that I was nearly ready to transplant the tomato seedlings into 4 inch pots. Once the weather stalled the new growth of the small plants, I held off doing anything besides just making sure they had as much light from the window as they waited in the garage for spring.
Instead of planting into 4 inch pots I changed the plan and re-potted into a mid-sized between the 1 inch homes they were used to and the too big 4 inch ones. The plants have roots enough to hold the soil around them as I have done the transplanting but not the vigor I would have had if the weather had stayed mild.
So for now, the 12 plants that I started from the saved seeds of last years crop of orange cherry tomatoes and the 12 plants that I started from the commercial Super Sweet 100 Hybrid seed, will be babied along until the next growth spurt before transplanting them into the 4 inch pots.
