We have had plants started indoors for weeks now, and some of my tomato plants are easily over 2' tall. This is the first year that we have started our own plants from seed so this is a learning experience, and it's been a good one! However, someone mentioned to me to make sure that my tomato plants didn't grow too tall and spindly, and I have been looking at my tomato plants wondering how I do that! lol There are branches that have grown out all the way up the plant, although there are not many of them, so I guess in a way they ARE kind of spindly! Will they fill out the more they mature???
And speaking of spindly, we have also planted broccoli and cauliflower plants for the first time this year as well. THEY are definately coming up spindly! They look *nothing* like the full plants that I have purchased from the store in the past years! Most people say this is normal, and some say their's have done well, and some say their's have fallen over and died. How does the store get such heartier, healthier looking plants??!!
Our zuchinni plants are doing awesome though, and it looks like they are going to start producing right here on the kitchen table!!
