First Tomatoes of 2021 Being Planted
Yes, there are live, green, luscious-looking tomato plants in the greenhouse now, a May BLT date to be met! However, our timing of starting up the greenhouse this week could not have been worse with this blitz of subzero days ahead of us, but out tomato plants, started in December, were oblivious to this concern and were ready to be transplanted into their pot homes for the season.
The plants traveled here from Schram’s greenhouse in Portage on Wednesday afternoon when the temperatures were above 32 degrees. With the sun shining bright that afternoon, the greenhouse temperatures were in the balmy 80’s and the plants seemed right at home. Everyone wanted to help make up the pots and get our fingers in the dirt for the first time this year!
