Default We Need More Tomato Plant Pictures

Hi,

I don't know about you all, but I LOVE seeing pictures of tomato plants and tomato seedlings.
Please don't be stingy and start sharing what your tomato plants look like. I will upload pictures of all my tomato plants clinging to some pale sun rays from my main windows.
I get such a kick from seeing tomatoes grow that I want to share with everybody how my plants are doing. Some of you old timers are probably tired of this, but I am not.

I agree, mouka

Recently I started a thread about it . But then some members either cannot post/upload pictures or are not a big fan of pictutures.
TO EACH HIS OWN.

Here are mine in the box I built to prepare them for the outdoors. They need about another five days and they'll be ready.

Btw.. the long leggy ones were doing great until I put them in the garage for cold treatment. They took off with growth even under lights. Seems like I was having to move the lights up daily to keep the plants out of them.

If you feel lonely and have not done it yet you can always go to the Photo Gallery and start at the "last"page which starts in 2006.

Peppers. They need to go out soon. They've outgrown their cups and it's too close to plant out time to transplant them. Just gave them a tablespoon of Epsom per gallon of water. Guess I'll see what happens.

There are several threads about the benefits of Epsom salt. I would love to hear from you how it went.
Your peppers look nice by the way. I wouldn't worry about some of the leaves yellowing, it's just they need to go into the ground very soon.

You have nice pepper plants, stainless.
Mine are about the same size ... some have pods, some have flowers and some just budding. I have to baby them maybe another 10 day and then take them out for spring training.
