Seeds of Change, Planting PURPLE tomatoes

Remember when I told you that I received some seed packets from Seeds of Change a while back? Judah and I had a blast planting the Tomato Garden Starter Kit.  You can see him talking about our little “experiment” here.

Besides sending me the starter kit, Seeds of Change also sent me a selection of tomato and squash seeds.  All of the seeds were certified USDA Organic and several of the tomato varieties were heirlooms – including Cherokee Purple, which I am really excited about!  The Cherokee Purple Tomatoes are PURPLE! and they are native (read: do well) to Georgia where I live! I’ve never tried this type but I love homegrown tomatoes so I’m excited to give this exotic looking type a try!

I started my seedlings with my green-thumb momma’s help.  The pictures here are of the seedlings outside.  We started them indoors but then brought them out to the greenhouse for a bit of “hardening” (aka: to help them to become more acclimated to the outdoors and the harsh weather before just sticking them in the ground).

The next step is to actually plant them.  We’ve waited just a bit longer for this step.  Although it has been very pretty here, and the weather has been unseasonably warm, we decided to wait just a bit longer.  Some of our neighbors have already put their plants in the ground, but word just came that we’re to get one more cold snap this week.  So, its a good thing we waited…we won’t have to worry about them kicking the bucket before they even get a good start.

What about you?  Have you started any plants this season?  Are you growing any of your own foods – big or small, I’d love to hear about it!
