    This batch was mainly zinnia, tagetes, and nasturtium. And my brother just came by with some sweet pea and snap dragon seeds so more work ahead! How are your tomatoes doing - have they come up?

    Oh how exciting!!! I can't wait to see the progression! I'm not familiar with all of those flowers so going to google and look for pictures

    The tomato babies are doing great, all came up!!! There's only one set of leaves so far and as I understand it those are NOT the true leaves. I've read that I do not "feed them" until there are 2 sets of true leaves up ???? Any idea ???

    I don’t feed them till they have a bit more than 2 sets as if you used soil especially made for seedlings or potting soil, it already has everything the plant needs. I always wait till the plant is a good 5 -6” high. I’ve been using 10-52-10 as Vitamin for decades. Made for starters (seedlings). But I use it even if it’s not a starter plant. I swear your plants are bigger than normal. I get people stopping and staring lol. I also use it in the spring on the grass to give the roots a boost. Roots are the life of any plant. No roots no plant. I remember the first time using this on grass and on regular basis, I didn’t know, kept cutting the grass every week cause it was so high...dawned on me had to be the vitamin. Lolll. So I used it a couple times throughout the summer on the grass. . But guarantee I always have that vitamin in my garage. Great stuff!

    Yes, the first set of leaves will not look like tomato leaves, but once tomatoes have come up there will be 'real' leaves pretty soon. I have sown a few pots of tomatoes and it will be exciting to see if they come up. These seeds come from tomatoes we grew several years ago but i hope they will germinate. Just in case, I have a back-up plan with other family members sowing tomatoes for me

    Thank you so much! Yea, it's weird the leaves I see now all look the same LOL

    Wait, you have seeds from actual tomatoes that you grew? How do you do that? Just in case mine are successful this summer....

    Yes! I just scrape out the seeds from a tomato and let them dry on a pice of kitchen tissue paper. There are more fancy methods (fermenting the seeds, for instance) but I go with the simplest method. I also collect seeds from flowers like poppies, tagetes, and calendulas, and I store them in coffee filters.

    @sisters3
    Quick progress here - the old tomato seeds came up after just a few days and most flower seeds have been pretty quick too.
