Seeding Tomatoes

Posted 2/15/2018 2:25pm by Kelly Leach.

Last week while we were getting 12" of snow Kelly and Amy seeded 2,000 tomato plants, putting one teeny tomato seed into each hole of the 1" rock wool cubes. This morning Larry stopped by the office to tell me the seeds have started to germinate. In a few weeks the plants will have real leaves then they can be moved into bigger rock wool cubes. A few weeks after that the plants will be tall enough to put on the coco coir slabs and clipped to the strings where they'll remain until November. By then the stems will be somewhere in the range of 30' long. Next week we'll get some lettuce started. 2018 growing season is underway.
