The tomatoes have been sitting in the basement window for the past 6 weeks. Tall and spindly and falling over. Just as I expected. Put them out for 2 hours today – starting the process to harden them off. Hope to get them planted within the next 2 weeks.
And just as I expected, a couple hours in the fresh air knocks them all over. It doesn’t matter. I transplant them to the top leaves. What they look like now isn’t relevant.
The wife got me a compost bin a few weeks back. It’s already 2/3 full. Lot of ants, beetles and maggots. Awesome. I went rooting around in it last night. Smells nasty. But it was nice and hot. So it’s working.
Planted an apple tree out front. 5 grafts on it. Gravenstein, Macintosh, Spartan, Spy and Red Delicious.
