Filling up

I’ve moved the 12 tomato “seedlings” that comprise the “Huge Plant” portion of my giant tomato growing experiment from under metal halide lights to the small hoop house.  They take up nearly half of the structure.  I’m more than two weeks behind getting these into their permanent home for this growing season.

The tallest of these 12 is Big Zac (4.20 Diaz 2011) at 53″, while the shortest is Delicious (4.46 Marley 2011) at 25″.

One backup Delicious (6.51 Meisner 2011) seedling which was way behind schedule germinating back in December is now in the ground.  This one also had a 3X (or more) megabloom which I left on the vine and attempted to pollinate.  Obviously I pruned off leaves very heavily and buried the plant deeply.  I’m concerned that the soil may be too strong, as it has a distinct smell of chicken manure.
