Tomato Seedlings in Different Stages of Development

My Black Krim tomato seedlings are plugging along nicely in their containers. IMG_1851Started from seed, these are the tomatoes that have been most successful in my garden in growing into seedlings, compared to other seed varieties.

In each container, I’d sprinkled multiple seeds, in hopes that at least one seedling would emerge. As shown in the photo (click on it for a better view), this is what you sometimes get: one seedling that is clearly robust and a bit more mature, followed several weeks later by the emergence of new seedlings.

When these new seedlings are sufficiently mature, I will carefully remove them one by one with a garden trowel and transplant them into their own unique containers. The fact that some containers in my garden have seedlings emerging weeks apart saves me the additional time from having to plant “replacement plants” when the older ones stop fruiting and die.

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