It was quite sometime since the last time I give updates on tomatoes. A good start to begin with because the seeds are new, sold in airtight packet from the supermarket. I need 6 plants to suit the gardening plan, but to be on the safe side, 7 seeds were germinated. All of them sprouted. Six of them were planted, and the other one was still growing in the little pot. From past experience, somewhere along the way, one or two may not go through at this tender stage.
To my surprise, all six seem to be surviving and doing fine. Good weather, well prepared soil, good seedlings arising from freshly bought seeds and better care could just be the contributing factors. Now I am figuring out where to put the single tomato seedlings on another vegetable bed so that it survive through the whole cycle.
Mulch is mostly dried remnants of winged bean plant and a little bit of dried grass as seen in the picture. The plants seem to enjoy the cooler environment provided by the mulch. I think snails will not find it easy to crawl through the mulch to get to the lovely tomato shoots!
We do experience wilting problem in previous attempts, I just hope it wont happen again this time round. Let there be bountiful tomatoes hanging down to cheer everybody up.
