April 17

Just a quick update on my tomato seedlings – they’re coming along nicely, most with two sets of true leaves after just over 2 weeks. Three of the original set didn’t sprout so I replanted those – that’s why a couple seedlings are behind the others.

The sprouts are maybe getting a little leggy; the setup I have doesn’t let me put the light as close to the pots as I’d like. I’m not too concerned about it, though. When I plant my tomatoes I always bury them up to the top few sets of leaves anyway, because tomatoes will grow roots from the buried stem and leaf nodes. This actually improves the root structure of the plant!
