Tomato Season is not long off

I just finished transplanting the tomatoes for sale into 3" pots. A nice size for a big healthy tomato start. This year we are using completely organic potting soil and fish emulsion for fertilizer. It's been difficult to find just the right organic potting soil and fertilizer for seedlings. But we know many of our customers want more than 'no pesticide' vegetables. Here's a few of the transplants that will be ready starting the 1st and 2nd week of May. If you choose to plant that early take care to watch for a late frost!
