Transplant Those Little Seedlings Soon

After starting my tender vegetables such as tomatoes, eggplant and peppers from seed inside, they have grown by leaps and bounds. Now is a good time to carefully separate those baby plants and put them into their own 4″ containers. You will also want to lightly fertilize the containers, now and until you actually plant them in the ground, with a light dose of complete organic fertilizer. One COF that is free and works very well is used coffee grounds. You can mix some in water, and then use that water to moisten the soil in each seedling’s container.

Forecast to be nice weather here this weekend, so likely this is what I will be doing. Of course, I started way too many seeds, and am running out of room for lights for the trays–I may have to expand my horticultural operations to a table as well as my baker’s rack!
