Some of the last-started tomatoes. This was a first-time experiment with starting toms in 200-cell plug trays, also, starting as close to last frost date as seemed reasonable. You can get a lot going in a little space, but they won’t fit in there for long. (Gotta admit, this photo’s a bit of a placeholder in my post-a-day plan. With the sudden fantastic weather, and my first full-time all-around helper in the garden just arrived—energetic, enthusiastic, no microfarming experience—I was totally immersed in fieldwork and FORGOT TO SNAP a slice of today’s main action. Tomorrow’s another day!)

Dear latest tomato
We are doing a project on tomatoes and want to know what photosynthesis is.
If you have the answer please e-mail us back.!!!
Do you have to transplant your plugs before they get true leaves? I am trying to figure out why my plugs seem to die off before they get true leaves. I am in a greenhouse too, so maybe they want more water than just 2 to 3 times a day. Any suggestions?
You could transplant before the leaves appear, but the plug may not hold together when you remove it.
If you are having to water 2-3 times per day , your green house may be too hot. 1 watering per day would be ideal. Subsequently you could be over watering them and the roots are not getting enough air.
I am a start up gardener that is doing a type of CSA system this coming year. My biggest challenge at this point is to figure out how much of each thing to plant. I have around 1/2 acre at the moment that is tilled and ready. I am looking at maybe 15 members this year. Last year I had 7, but just planted things to try them out as it was a new plot and new land.
Any help would be appreciated! I live down by Orangeville btw, not too far from you.
