tertiary...

The third set of leaves are just beginning to emerge...



I just realized I have completely lost track of the variety of each tomato plant. I wrote the names on the lid of the starter greenhouse, and once the plants started growing and I removed the lid, they have been turned so many times I no longer know which plants are which. No big deal... I'll find out once they start bearing fruit.
The biggest problem is if I give some extra plants away, I won't be able to tell the person what they are getting.


Sunday morning breakfast... Everything bagel with cream cheese and freshly picked Arugula

Depending on which varieties you're growing, you might be able to tell which is which earlier than when they begin to bear fruit. I almost always lose track of names when I start seeds inside. Most of the time you can make an educated guess by looking at the size and shape of the leaves, how hairy the stems are, coloring, etc.

Good point Fern, although these are all new varieties for me, so I have no past experience to go by for ID purposes. I need to be more organized next time.... yeah, right!
