Chose today as warm as it is to repot the tomatoes and let them air out a little. These will be a gamble as I will likely put them the garden in not too far into February. Gambling on warm enough soil and not any frost. There’s always Reifels if I lose.

HK those turnips look good. I got a bed ready yesterday to plant potatoes in this week and had to remove some mustard greens. Could not give any mustard greens away. I decided I would cook them and pulled about 8 or 9 small turnips to cook with the greens. They be sho nuff awesome. Had planned on cooking broccoli leaves but since I could not give the mustard away I cooked them. I love eating those small turnips.

I tried to get a big head start last year.

Bought a small greenhouse on Amazon...LED grow lights and a small heater. Kids called it my “weed farm”.

Tomatoes did well in the greenhouse, but I gambled and the frost got them. Luckily I started a 2nd batch not too far behind and they made it.

I tried squash, zucchini and cucumbers...do not recommend. They just got incredibly tall and spindly....and very fast. When I planted them the wind tore them up within days.

Tomatoes and peppers seem to be about the only thing that worked...and I just decided to buy them at Reifels this year.

Yep, Reifels makes things easy. I just bought a grow light, one of these weird color multiple LEDs set in a grid thing off Amazon. Put it all on a shelf in my HVAC/water heater room. Most of the tomato seeds I planted germinated and hardly any of the peppers did, but the house has been on the cool side even in that warmer room. I bought some mostly open pollinated, some known and then maybe some not so well known varieties of tomato seeds that Reifels might or likely wouldn’t have. Reifels does have a great variety of tomatoes. Not sure why I went through the trouble of ordering seed and doing all the rest, just something to mess with and keep busy. Way things have been in 2020, I wanted to make sure I could at least have a backup, more self sufficient plan and test it.

I have about enough larger containers that I’ll transplant the tomatoes into once they outgrow the 3-4” ones they are in now. By that time, the weather should certainly be good enough to put them in the garden.
