Default Seedlings growing like weeds

First picture taken 18 Apr after potting up. Next 4 pictures taken today 23 Apr. Round pots are DotPots and the square ones are Cow Pots. Only planted 80 this year. Ami

You have quite good growth on healthy looking sturdy plants. With 80 plants you'll have a lot to do this summer.

The medium I used to pot up with is Fox Farms "Light Warrior" and here are 2 pictures of it's ingredients. I just started using the other products pictured also which are liquid worm castings, liquid seaweed and Roots Organics "Buddha Grow" 2-0.5-1.5 organic plant nutrient. Ami

Ami-
Wow, how can a tomato not grow well with that pampering? You're giving them all of that before plant out? Sure can't argue with the results!!!!! Thanks.

Ami your doing a fine job there with your maters.I am way behind you right now. But when mine get settled in good they should take a new growth spurt. Some are showing their first set of true leaves.Anyway looks like your on the way to a good season if weather turns out right you should have a great harvest.Happy gardening.

When you find the right combination it's a no-brainer. These "Jump Starts" are a lot better than "Jiffy 7's" as they don't harden up like Jiffy's when they get dry.
So one 81 pellet Jump Start set, one bag of Light Warrior and 81 Dot Pots or CowPots and a descent light setup and you are assured success. Ami

Ami,... those seedlings look fantastic. Good Job!! I'm wondering if the liquid worm castings are available here in the USA.

My pleasure Darlene. You can also thank Mischka the site owner as he has the site set up where it is very easy to do these things. Ami
