The tomato plants have been grafted! So far it has been going very smoothly. The grafting process itself took some time, but with teamwork, patience, and perseverance we have prevailed! Currently, they are tucked away in a corner, protected from the evil world in the cozy, warm germination chamber with 100% humidity and no sunlight. Completely stress free. The plants are handling the aggressive surgery incredibly well. Initially, they were wilting a little too much for my comfort right after the graft, but have since bounced back once they had time to settle down.
Hanging baskets are moving on up! Almost half of them are already hanging in the greenhouse. If you have driven by, I'm sure you have noticed how green everything is getting. Along with the hanging baskets, our vegetable transplants for the field are coming along nicely. They have been germinating alongside our marigolds and petunias in the germination chamber. We seed these in row trays to get them started, then transplant them over to larger trays to prep them for the field. These crops include eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes. Eggplants sometimes suffer from similar soil-borne diseases as tomatoes, so this year we are actually going to graft those as well!
That's all for this week! Thanks for reading and Happy Spring!
