Last week, what was left of the tomato seedlings started sprouting their first set of true leaves.
In case you are new to seed starting, when you plant a tomato seed, the first leaf-like structures that emerge from the seed are known as cotyledons. Tomato seedlings prefer that you wait for the true leaves before you transplant them.

I am experimenting with a potting soil from our natural food market. It comes from a farm south of here in Yelm, WA. It consists of peat, perlite, and worm castings. I am hoping the worm castings will behave like a fish emulsion that propagation books recommend at this stage in the game.
Count so far: 8 Saucy Pastes, 23 Purple Cherokees, 21 Black Princes, and 19 Italian Heirlooms, 16 Isis Candy.
More to come....
