Preparing Tomato Plants for Transplanting

18 May

Today I started “hardening off” the two tomatoes that I started from seedearlier this year.  If you too have tomatoes in your window, you’ll want to get them ready to move outside.

I’m aiming to get mine in the ground by Memorial Day weekend, so I’ll spend the next 6 to 9 days gradually exposing them to the outdoor air, light and temperatures before they go into the garden bed.

Shari shares this guide to hardening-off tomatoes: growinggardens.org/hardening-off-plant-starts. I have some flowers, too, but I’m assuming they aren’t as complicated as fruit-bearing tomatoes to toughen up.

Who else has tomatoes, and how many? We should think abtomato-seedlingout what is going where in the small garden, so we don’t end up with too many tomatoes!
