Here are a couple of photos of stage 3-A of the tomato project. I only planted four out of the 12 or so plants I have. I just got plum tuckered out! I had to push myself to go ahead and plant that last guy and now I just want to go lay down. Last year I did it all in one afternoon, but with a passenger it's a bit more challenging. I hope to have them all in by the end of the week to take advantage of the rain we are supposed to have coming in. Anyhow, here is one photo of some of the plants I actually planted, and the other photo is of tomatoes still in their containers, awaiting planting.
The lovely green things in this photo are a rampaging spearmint plant that survived the winter and a mysterious bunch of lettuce that I vaguely remember letting the girls plant the seeds for in the fall. I never expected to see any results, but lo and behold, lettuce!

I forgot to take a picture of stage 1, but here is a picture of stage 2; after I transplanted the 'maters from the tiny little containers they came in to bigger containers to "harden them off" before planting in their permanent homes. Our tomato guy, Keith from Heirloom Tomatoes of Texas had a really bad season, so the tiny little plants you see are his; while the bigger plants are ones he bought from other growers.
I'm determined to be really organized this season and keep a journal of what I'm doing, what is working and what is not, and which plants are doing well...
We'll see how it goes!
