Dwarf Tomato Update

dwarf tomato update

The dwarf tomato seedlings are doing really well. Most are a few inches high and starting to fill out now. The example above is a Beauty King F4, a line with a goal of red fruit with gold stripes. These are being grown in the same mix as all of our seedlings at work (and at home): 3 parts coconut coir, 1 part vermiculite, and 1 part worm castings. We'll be spraying with a weakened solution of Drammatic K (OMRI certified) fish emulsion with kelp next week.

All of the tomatoes and peppers are loving the weather lately--bright, sunny days and temps in the greenhouse between 70-95 degrees last week. Though, it looks like we'll be getting some rain this week.
