|Ranger Jane and her payload of weepy tomato plants.|
Anyway, all that is to say that today the plants moved outside. They're long and lanky from being so closely packed on the greenhouse table, but I'll fix that on planting day by burying them deep. Tomatoes are cool because they actually sprout roots from their stems if they have any soil contact (you may have seen that on tomato plants that bend too close to the ground), so burying them deeply just gives them more roots and a stronger grounding.
My main challenge for the day was not letting those weak stems snap as the plants moved around. (Plants, unlike boots, are not make for walkin'!) I lost one in the transition, but that seemed like a pretty good percentage to me.
