Transplanting to pots

The seedlings are now big enough to transplant into 4″ pots.

Notice that the roots are growing out the bottom of the peat pellets. This is a clear sign that the seedlings are ready to be planted in pots.

As shown in the pictures, I place the peat pellet  and plant all the way in the bottom of the pot and fill the pot with potting soil.

The pictures above are actually a couple of weeks old.

Planting Seeds

I planted the following seeds in peat pellets last weekend.

Tomato:
Legend
Indigo Apple
Golden Nugget
Mystery mix

Peppers:
GhostJalapeno
Sweet Bell

Each peat pellet has 3-4 seeds planted in them. In about a week, I will use some little scissors to clip off all but one plant in each pellet.20160305_095820[1] 20160305_095805[1] 20160305_095801[1]
