|The plastic containers cherry tomatoes come in are a good place to start seeds|
But then those little seedlings start to get a bit bigger and start crowding each other and then they need larger pots. So you space the Gaillardia seedlings pictured above out 3 or 4 to a pot and realize, you've got 20 plants here!!
And what about all those tomatoes you just couldn't resist planting? I was gifted with a number of new varieties this year and couldn't resist trying out almost a dozen different types.
Initially the plastic cookie container held them quite well. But now they're climbing out the sides. I've already planted out 22 tomato plants into separate pots and I've just about run out of pots. Never mind space. And they're going to keep growing. Looks like the piano room is going to look like a jungle again this year despite my best intentions.
If you're wondering what the heck I'm going to do with all these plants don't worry. I'm not that crazy that I would try planting these all out in my own garden. The Canoe Cove Plant Sale is coming up on May 19 and what I don't use will be donated to the sale. Hope everyone likes tomatoes.
