Smart and Frugal Thinning of SeedlingsSmart and Frugal Thinning of Seedlings
By dave, July 28, 2015

In this video, Trish demonstrates how she manages her trays of seedlings. Rather than simply cut away excess seedlings in a tray, she divides the seedlings and pots them up into empty cells. This way she ends up with full trays of seedlings with very few wasted plants.

By gardengus on Jul 31, 2015 7:21 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Brandywine, Pink')

I have grown this tomato for years and believe it to be my favorite for slicing , both in size and mostly taste.
Does not keep to well, gets soft easy , best eaten fresh picked for best flavor.

By gardengus on Jul 31, 2015 7:15 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Celebrity')

I have grown this tomato for several years and always found the plants to be reliable in abundant production , in various weather conditions.
Medium size and good multi-use tomato.

By Newyorkrita on Jul 31, 2015 7:12 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'San Marzano')

This is my first year growing San Marzano. I simply had to try it because of the people recommending it at the Fruit and Veggies Forum. I compare it to Roma, maybe slightly larger but similar taste. At least when fresh. Very dry. No seeds. I will have to use these for stewed tomatoes this year and see how they turn out.

In my opinion they work well for fresh salsa if you mix them with some more juicy slicer type tomatoes.

By Newyorkrita on Jul 31, 2015 6:55 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Beefsteak')

This spring buying my seedling tomato plants I purchased the variety "Beefsteak" instead of the "Beefmaster" I had intended to buy. So this is my first year growing this one.

I am impressed with the large tomatoes I have picked although I find that the sizes are variable. The plants themselves are productive with little disease and minimal yellowing of bottom leaves.

Flavor is excellent although I realize taste is a very subjective thing. But I do very much like them and will probably grow them again next season.

By Claudia on Jul 31, 2015 3:57 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Westbourne Fireside Chats')

I had this daylily in my garden from 2009 until this summer. Just as the majority of the Westbourne daylilies, it just did okay here in my zone 5b.The increase had been slow on this one. It did bloom well for me, but it had a low bud count. Bloom time was very short compared to other daylilies. The main reason for moving this plant out, though, was simply wanting to make room for something I liked better.
