Garden log 1/8/20. I may have gone a little overboard on the tomato seed ordering from Etsy. Etsy is full of intriguing seeds! Danger, danger. These are from NurserySeeds (https://www.etsy.com/shop/nurseryseeds).
It’s okay. I’m going to share some with a friend, and even if all the seeds don’t germinate, this *should* also result in more seedlings to give away in the garden club group in May. I basically want one tomato plant of each variety for myself. Seeds make it super-easy to be generous.
The next question is when to start them, which is mostly a matter of a little math. Okay, so the internet tells me that “generally, the time to start your tomato seeds is about 6- 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost date in your area, planting the seedlings outdoors about 2 weeks after that date.”
So that’s April 18 this year, according to the farmer’s almanac. If I start 8 weeks in advance, that’s Sunday February 21. Did I do my math right? If so, I’ll put a rubber band around these seeds, stick a post-it on them that says Feb 21, and put a calendar reminder into GCal, because otherwise, I will likely forget.
Next, I’m going to dive into the Baker Creek catalog for veggie seed ordering….
