Planted Six Different Kinds Of Tomato Seed In Trays Today
I’m looking out my office window and thinking it would be a great day to go fishing but fishing season doesn’t start here in New Brunswick until tomorrow the 15th. Once I start fishing my mind stays there for a few weeks so it’s now or I’ll be waiting another week or two to get seeds started.
I went out to the garden shed/garage to get some seed trays then realized I had brought them in last fall. They were in the mess I call my work bench. Gotta get that cleaned up but for now I’ll just use the kitchen table. I’ll try to get it all done while Jenny’s at church today so it’s not a mess she’s going to see. Hopefully.
Lots of Tomatoes This Year
Last year I stewed tomatoes and made yellow pear chutney so we could enjoy it through the winter. They lasted pretty good but not enough for the entire winter and spring. I’ll be making so much more this year and maybe even enough to share a few jars with friends.
Making Plant Markers
I have been using popsicle sticks as seed markers but they tend to rot quickly and ink bleeds as soon as they get wet. They are okay for indoors but I am using a mini blind to make a bunch of plastic markers.
The mini blinds were old and broken and headed for the yard waste pickup next month. And I would have chucked if I hadn’t read that article that mentioned the idea. I love repurposing and this is great.
They were easy to cut with kitchen scissors. I cut them into about 6 inch pieces so I will be able to make hundreds of them from this one bling. We have a couple of other we were going to toss so we have years worth.
I will have to pickup a smaller tipped permanent marker so that I can write a bit smaller so they don’t look goofy.
