In all the photos, seed starting mixes are arranged from left to right as follows: Black Gold (black dot), Jiffy Mix (red dot), and Green Planet Naturals (green dot):
|Variety: Sun Gold|
|Variety: Cherokee Purple|
|Variety: Red Siberian|
|Variety: Super Marzano Hybrid|
|Variety: Beaverlodge Plum|
Overall, this has been a valuable learning experience for me, without a doubt! I think it is clear from the results that your choice in seed starting mixes really does make a tremendous difference in the health and vigor of your seedlings.
Happy growing, Sherrill! If you want to adopt any of my lil' guys to replace the ones you lost, just let me know! Next week some time I will be potting all of these babies up into larger pots with new soil and giving them a shot of fish emulsion! I'm curious to see if the poor little Jiffy starts catch up to their bigger siblings given some time & care. One thing's for sure... the man with the beautiful hair needs to get on that green house repair, 'cause it's gonna be a tomato jungle in my house in no time!
