20 Days After Planting, the First “Real” Tomato Leaves Appear

DSC_0003Three weeks after starting seeds indoors the tomatoes, basil, eggplant, tomatillo and peppers have all sprouted. The sweet Puerto Rican peppers were the last to sprout, the final one just pushing at the earth this morning. I have been watering each pot as needed, after it dries a bit but not all the way through (you would think they would dry at the same rate, but they do not) and turning the trays 180 degrees each day to try and even out the light from the windows so the plants grow straight. I will continue this daily routine until the days get warm enough to start hardening off the plants outdoors. The tomatoes are starting to grow their first “real” leaves.
