I'm So Proud !

DeebyFebruary 15, 2014

I saved two seeds from a really good tasting store tomato a few months ago.
I can hardly believe it-they're up ! Waiting now for true leaves.
If I get healthy plants and good tomatoes I'm going to freak out !
I'm learning that it's hard work babysitting seedlings. I hope the effort pays off.

You have never grown a tomato before? If not, have fun.I hope the new plants give tomatoes that taste just as good. :)

That is good, I think.
If you want to become a good gardener you should get excited OFTEN.

Yes, I always grow container tomatoes, but from plants. I have never used seeds let alone seeds I saved.
Thanks for the good wishes !

Congratulations, Deeby!

I remember the feeling of shock several years ago, that seeds I'd saved actually sprouted and grew. (Mine were descendents of some grape tomatoes that volunteered in my compost area.)

This is how I end up with literally several hundred tomato seedlings when I realistically can barely keep up with a few dozen plants. I just LOVE the process!

I buy my seeds and would like to try saving my own, so I hope I will be as successful!
