Tomatoes and Sweet Peppers transplanted
I have never grown tomatoes from seed, I have always gotten plants. Last year I received a packet of tomatoe seed and a packet of sweet bell pepper seeds as a bonus from a seed company, so I thought that I would plant them and see how they did.

Traci BlitzenBenish on Jul 23, 2014When transplanting your tomatoes, plant them up to their ears as we say! When I transplant my tomatoe seedlings, I place the entire stem (up to the second set of leaves), into the planting medium. This creates a MUCH stronger stem that can withstand wind etc. They also don't lay down like those in the picture.
Dot M on Jul 26, 2014I do that way Tracy. Does make them stronger. But for some reason my peppers don`t seem to be growing much this year. Always had good luck other years with plenty to freeze.. Crazy weather.
