The seeds are beginning to sprout!
I have had them all sitting by a warm window that has direct sunlight. The first to sprout, interestingly enough, was one of the Cherokee Purple tomato plants. One sprouted a week after I planted it and it has been cranking with growth even since. All the other Cherokee Purples haven’t even broken through the soil surface yet. It will be interesting to see how this early bird tomato plant does! They are pretty leggy (meaning they have a very long stem) but I have never had a problem with leggy tomato plants not producing well. I didn’t expect them to sprout so fast and did not get them under a grow light fast enough!
The other early sprouts are the Anna Russian Tomato plants that just broke through yesterday and the leeks which broke through a few days ago.
Still waiting on the peppers and eggplants and the rest of the Cherokee Purples!
Time to move the sprouts under the grow lights. My grow light of choice it the Hydrofarm Grow Light System
It doesn’t take up too much space and it is easy to adjust the height of the lamp as the plants grow. It is all I need for now and it helps give the seedlings that extra light that they need to grow well (and not get too leggy).
