I noticed a few more tomato babies today. Granadero, Jaune Flamme, and Juliet have all set some fruit. Everything from the second round of planting is flowering now. Cream Sausage and Maglia Rosa are lagging a bit--they may be getting a little too much shade. The Beneventos, Lucky Bees, and Paul Robeson in the new bed are a few weeks behind, but the plants look nice and healthy.

I'm also probably going to do a very late planting of 1 or 2 Napa Chardonnay plants, which I've never grown before. Last month, I made the mistake of not emptying my pockets before tossing my pants in the wash. The remainders of my Groovy Tunes, Fat Frog, and Jochalos packets along with an entire packet of Napa Chardonnay went through the wash. Jochalos and Napa Chardonnay also went through the dryer. I honestly didn't think any of them would germinate, but I threw each variety in a 4" pot and put them on the heat mat. The two that avoided the dryer were at nearly 100% germination, Napa Chardonnay was around 50%, and none of the Jochalos made it.

Maybe I need to put my seeds through the wash.

@LindaJean I'm lucky they were in little plastic baggies or I would have been scraping seeds off of everything!

I'm still waiting for Napa Chardonnay to get a bit bigger, but all of the rest of the tomatoes are in their final places. I went ahead and moved the Jochalos to their big pots on Sunday. They're only around 4" tall but they're already putting on buds. These micro dwarves are so fun to watch--I think it's going to be a new obsession. I was also thinking they might be good to grow for some of the seniors my partner works with through the housing authority.
