Tomato Seed Planting For Spring 2019

This year, I'm trying to plant tomato seeds a little earlier than I normally do.  In previous years, I had the best of intentions, but it seems like it would be the middle of January before I planted them.  This year, I had a plan.

December 18, 2018 - Planted

I used the Burpee Seed Starting Kit again and used the Burpee Celebrity Hybrid Tomato seeds like I normally do.  I love this type of seed because it seems to do well in Florida where I live.  I love the Burpee Seed Starting Kit as it is just easy and works well.

Dec 18, Planting




December 23, 2018 - Seedlings Emerge

There are 10 seedlings that emerged today going into day 5 since planting.  The following picture is not real easy to see them, but if I look closely, they are there. 

House temperatures have ranged from about 70 to 75

I've got each cell numbered so I can easily monitor things.  

Plant Cell Numbers Emerged are (10):

December 29, 2018 - Seedlings Emerge


All but two are germinated and up.  It doesn't look like they will come up, but everything else is doing fine.  We were gone for a few days, so the remaining germinations I didn't record on the exact date they popped up out of the soil.
