This morning I drug out the bag of peat pots, the transparent salad containers I'd been saving, and the seeds.
- Eight pots of "Sweet Million", which have done very well for me in the past.
- Seven pots of "Gardener's Delight". Who knows what these are? Says an indeterminate with "smallish" tomatoes. I'm adventurous.
- Seven pots of "Tumbler - F1 hybrid" - This is also a variety which has performed well for me in the past.
In the end I could only get two of the three "flats" into the bag greenhouse, so I popped the plastic top from the salad container on the Tumblers and will take it off as soon as they sprout.
Since the seeds I planted yesterday tolerate cool temps well, I can probably put them in a sunny sheltered spot and leave the pickier tomatoes in the greenhouse bag.
Of course I did all this before tackling any housework, so must now get up and clean, do dishes and start dinner in the crockpot. I figured if I cleaned before I'd just have to clean after as I was going to get dirt everywhere in the kitchen anyway. (Well, saying "I was going to get dirt everywhere", makes a good excuse to do gardening before housework. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
Oh, and I solved the cat problem by putting the "greenhouse" in the bathtub and closing the shower door. :)
