Direct Sown German Green Tomato Seeds Came Up. Now What?
These were seeds I harvested in 2012 from a plant that was a gift. After trying unsuccessfully to start them indoors in 2013 under optimum conditions, I decided to just throw them in a container in the yard this year (extremely poor conditions) and ignore them to see what happened. The darn things must like abuse because the seedlings are an inch high and looking kind of sassy.
The German Green may just be the best tomato I've ever tasted. I don't know if these seedlings will lead to a healthy, producing plant, especially given Seattle's short growing season. But I'd sure like to give them the chance. I even built a cold frame this Memorial Day. What can I do to bring them along without killing them? "PurpleThumbedLes" is not just my rep. :)
