My tomato and pepper experiment

The instructions say that once the seedlings have developed their first "true leaves", I should put them outside during the day to harden them off. All the tomatoes are ready for this move, but not all the peppers. In fact, some of the peppers are just now starting to germinate. I may start putting them outside for awhile anyhow.

So far, all the little plants seem to be doing well. They look a bit leggy, but that's to be expected.

Those are looking good. Hopefully the sun will take that legginess out of them. Helen

It is amazing what a little sunshine can do. Just think, if it makes that difference in plants, it'll do the same for us too. I need sunshine for sure. I think tomatoes grow faster than peppers do. So nice to see your efforts are doing well. 'On Ya'-ma
