88 tomato plants

...sunbathing on the windowsill.

I think there are about 29 varieties, but I'd have to check. What does it really matter? All I am worried about is, where to plant all the seedlings? I am sure I'll be able to give away some of them.
This week I will have to finally sow some cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, etc. I also seem to have a lack of capsicums and chillies. How did that happen? Ah, yes, quite a lot of the seeds did not germinate. Hmm.... maybe I can swap tomato plants for capsicums and chillies?

The veggie beds are slowly being cleared of weeds, and then they have to receive some compost and mulch. Spring is always a crazy time. Far too much to do, far too little time. Are you all organised? Done all your spring chores? If you nodded to these questions - good for you. If you still have some energy left, you are very welcome to come up to our place and help with our chores. :)

Oh I wish!

I think I have about half a dozen. But then, tomatoes don't do well here (Dunedin), and I'm also very very short on indoor space in which to get them past the baby stage.

I'm drooling at yours!

I have got a few tomatoes, some zucchini, looks like a couple of eggplants are finally showing their heads, no luck so far on anything else, so looks as if I will have to have another go. I didn't sow too many to start with.... no way could I fit 88 tomatoes in, it would be nice though.

did you read Stewart's post on the benefits of wood ash and pee for your tomato plants? Worth a try I reckon!
