The Growing Challenge #6: Once more, with feeling


Since there is still no sign of cucumber growth outside, I decided to start a few inside. I want my cucumbers!

If your can't tell from the photo, my tomatoes are getting rather tall. I will have to start thinking about moving them to a different container soon. Quite soon, in fact. I guess I'm going to have to start rassling up some containers. Does anyone know anything about this "hardening" process I have heard mentioned? When am I supposed to do that?

You'll have to ask my dad all of your burning tomato baby raising questions when you're here. :) I pretend to listen to him, but really I just tune out and instead enjoy the literal fruits of his labor around late June tee hee.

Love,
S

Best part of living at home (though I suppose the free lodging isn't bad either).

Patrick at Bifurcated Carrots just posted a great guide to hardening off. Way more concise than I've ever done it, but it's probably the best way possible...
