If I can assume that the team would get the pizza since I understand the babies would be too young to deal with it.

Carolyn, who should call Pizza World here and order for home delivery,now that you have me thinking pizza.
lol, yes Carolyn,pizza was for the humans in the transplant team. Also heath bar crunch cookies, and cut up fruit from Publix. We had such a good time, all were master gardeners, so lots to talk about.

It would have been fun to have you here. Like about 25 KARMA seedlings, plus others.....

The kind that needs immunosupressants after, no doubt. That would be exciting. Wow, you really are brilliant if you did that.

Tomato and pepper babies had a day to rest, now out in full shade to start hardening off. About 8 days until full sun.

Nice fat looking babies! Do you have to move them every day to harden them? Your flats look very efficient to handle the volume.

Yes, they will be moved a bit further everyday until they get full sun. By then they will be large enough to handle our afternoon thunderstorms too. The flats were bought used online for $4 each, with shipping it came to $8 each. So worth it. DH drilled holes into them for drainage. They are so heavy duty they will be there long after I am gone, lol.
One is a cardboard vegetable box covered in a clear plastic hefty bag because we ran out of red boxes. I got a little overzealous in seed sowing, haha.

Oh, wow. Just realized you don't have to shuffle under lights in
a basement with 4 ft of snow outside,

We hit 95 yesterday and 92 today. Central Park must have broke
a record at I think 98+

Looks great.

This is two weeks after transplant. They have grown amazingly well. We only lost one tomato plant and two pepper plants out of approximately 375 plants. I had a wonderful crew this year helping me. Everybody was really good. I'm about halfway through with replenishing all my Earthboxes too, I think it's going to be timed just about right.

Nice outdoor nursery of baby tomato plants. It all looks great as I watch leaves fall from the trees!
