Update: Hey guys so I know its been awhile since I posted the last update almost 2 weeks! I've just become sidelined with our projects and such haven't had the time to do any posting.
The tomatoes haven actually grown quite abit not so much in height but they have become alot more bushier since the transplant, there looking green and healthy. Also its been raining alot today was the first Sunny day in almost a week! I snapped some pictures for you guys to have a look.
Update - So I've been checking on my tomatoes daily like most and I discovered yesterday that something had eaten one of the branches off my earlygirl perhaps a raccoon? .

Update - So I just transplanted the tomatoes I picked up yesterday, the one I forgot its strain turns out to be a BrandyWine and the other is an Early Girl. Where I live the soils actually pretty good so, I just dug a hole about a foot deep and foot wide then back filled it with a mixture of homemade compost, topsoil, blood & bone meal & Canadian peat moss. Hit them with some water and proceed to let them soak up the sun!

Early Girl pictures: 4-7

Anyways I was at the grocery store yesterday which happened to have a garden center so I picked up 2 tomato plants just in case nothing happens with the seedlings. One of them is Early Girl and I forgot the name of the other haha i'll be sure to check it and post it for you guys. I plan on transplanting them later today since they were root bound when I bought them, I plan on taking pictures before and after the transplant. I'll
Hey there guys. Just figured id start the journal since the seeds have been in soil for 3 days and first signs of growth should be starting soon!
Alright so heres the details.
I got 5 coco fiber pots and placed 3 seeds in each pot to give me the best chance at succeeding. I then placed the pots with the seeds into a mini greenhouse which should give the seeds a nice warm, moist environment for them to thrive. I keep them in the shade during the hottest part of the day
