Tomato seedlings worth the effort?
I LOVE to grow tomatoes since they are my favourite fruit. I love to eat them fresh off the vine and turn them into lovely canned goods in the fall. However I always buy my tomatoes as plants from a green house and then plant them in the garden. Last year was my first year growing seedlings indoors and I am thinking that maybe this is the year to start my own tomatoes from seed.
However, as I think about doing that I also start to think is it worth the effort? Okay the growing the plants from seeds isn’t that hard and doesn’t really require that much effort. I think I am just afraid that what I grow won’t produce and then I will be tomato less..lol
I guess a good solution would to be to try some from seed and some from store and see what happens. Sounds logical, right? I also have a hard time finding Roma tomatoes when I am ready to plant my garden so I guess that would save that worry too. Okay I have talked myself into it!!! What does everyone else do?
Okay one more question. I have recently read a few articles that say you should plant your tomatoes in the same spot every year, unless you had blight. Does anyone do this?
I came across the picture below on Pintrest. They are worm tubes. You put the tubes in the ground and put kitchen scraps inside and then cap them. The worms will enter the tubes eat the scraps and then go back into the garden. I am not sure if this is a brilliant or crazy idea, but I think I just might try it!!
