Potting seedlings

Yesterday when I checked on my beloved seedlings, their roots were starting to pop out from their mud-cakes, so I figured the time had come to start pottingĀ them.

So I mixed soil and perlite and started potting!


But I have to say, I’m not sure how smart it was getting these pots. They will have to survive two months indoors before I can take them outside. The upside is that I can just plant the whole thing and it will decompose, but I have a feeling they will be a wee bit moist and soggy by then, perhaps even mouldy (the horror!). So I will have to keep a watchful eye on these things.

Obviously I’ll have to get more plastic pots as well, considering I have a lot more seedlings to grow – after easter!

My little yellow cherry tomato seedling are looking rather long and gangly. I’m not sure they are supposed to look like this. The other seedlings are shorter, but looking more stout and healthy. I guess we’ll just have to wait an see how it goes!
