More Tomato Seedlings than Planned

All tomato seedlings are now potted up.  Totals:

No. seedlings:  3,056

No. varieties planted:  468 (includes about 30 crosses, off-types and unknowns)

No. varieties with zero germination, even after three attempts:  34

This is about 50% more than I had planned – first round of planting yielded poor germination for many varieties, so I double and triple planted for the second round – then just about everything germinated, even from the first round!  Even though this is way fewer than last year (880 varieties and more than 30,000 seedlings total), it’s still plenty to keep one person busy.

Anyhow, here are about half the seedlings in the high tunnel:

Forecast shows a few more nights in the 30’s, then hopefully transplanting time in a week or so.
