I think the key with planting from that size is to do so while they are still actively growing and not overly rootbound.

I plant directly from the pots shown, most of which are 2 inch with a few 2.75 inches
The reason I asked is I know commercial farmers do not repot into 4 inch pot. They go straight into the ground from relatively small cells so was wondering if you did the same.

It seems that for every packet I sent out, I have received about 4 back, with seed also coming from Volvo (always welcome) here plus an offer of an entire collection of tomato seed from someone who has a lot of good paste or drying varieties. I think I either need to extend the extension or more likely move to a strict prune and topping system.
That collection of seed did show up, 104 lots of seed, only a small percentage that I had and some that I wanted. Yipppeeee

Normally do not see the value in going larger under my conditions unless I knew that there would be a delay planting, then I would move them up.

Excavator here today to sort out mounds of soil in vegetable garden extension. 145 meters of lands about 1 meter wide that just need a little bit of finishing to be ready to plant. Timing will work beautifully with tomatoes being hardened off now. Largest tomatoes about 5 inches high and growing very well.

Whoops forgot to mention that it was to dark for photos when we finished

You're going to need all that extra growing area with what you have coming along plus 104 more varieties to play with! :D

Yes Godawgs, but I will save those 104 for next season, to late for a bulk sowing now, although I will sow one more today.

As indicated above, the Vege garden bed extension had a boost the other day. I have since completed the North wall of the bed, but still need to finish dismantling the wall adjoining the existing bed and complete the south wall, which needs to be easily removable in the short term for delivery of extra soil.

5839 fits to the left of 5838 to give full, south facing (from house) view.

The behaviour of light means you observe me as i was then, and not as I am now.
I cannot change history, so I do hope i gave you a good impression of myself

Yes, more soil needed to finish off. Will be getting some delivered over the next couple of days
