Tomato Container Garden: Seedling Update

I’m happy to report on the progress of my tomato container garden started last month.  Although it took a little bit longer than expected, a healthy 10 out of 21 containers show seedlings! Just another 11 to go!

HOW TO: What I’ve been doing is watering the containers 3 times per week, on the “flat” setting so that the soil gets moist but not soggy. I planted the seeds close to the surface of the soil so did not want a more forceful setting, like “soak” or “full” to force the seeds down deep into the soil, reducing the chances of germinating.

Each mature tomato plant produces several pounds of tomatoes so I’m prepared to be eating tomatoes out my ears and sharing with friends this summer. I can’t wait!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: The non-fruit parts of tomato plants are poisonous if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
