    Default Yesterday: Planted some Toms/Peppers/ Cucs in the GH

    Plugged in the heat tape in the soild boxes a few days ago,
    Mixed in some new soil & food to the soil boxes,
    Planted 4 tomatoes & 6 cucs + some Jalepeno & sweet peppers

    Figured the lilac & the birch trees are sprouting, must be time to plant
    Fingers crossed

    !!!! Gotta go get a "Matsu Express" from Mark. An early good tasting tomato !!!!

    He may have ripe ones by now, had some nice fruit hanging 2 weeks ago.

    Did you plant the cukes direct, or had you already started them earlier ? I'm just now getting mine started.

    I moved 5 Toms to the GH and lit the propane heater.. it maintained a 55 degree temp all night, but that's going
    to be expensive toms if I have to keep it lit very much….

    I planted starts.
    Have a few seeds as back up if needed.

    Yea, need to go look at heaters for mine
    Think I'll go electric & set it to come on around 45°
    More expensive tomatoes & cucs, but have great taste

    I had quite the surprise pop out in my plant B. F4, I have never seen a multi flora type of truss on a standard size tomato, tomato plant. Freaks of nature.

    Got a couple cuttings (clones ) from Mark.
    His wife said they're selling more tomatoes than flowers but I can't tell Mark that. OOPS.. LOL

    I went "all in" on my tomatoes. Moved all of them to the GH and turned on the propane.
    I thought I had a problem with a 4 july plant, it was very limp and the leaves were curled.. Discovered I had it too close to the heater.
    I kept 2 stupice plants in the house and keep setting them outside every morning, they'll be the "outside" pair.


    My cuke starts just sprouted yesterday. I'm amazed at how good your starts look.
