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 Newyorkrita on Aug 4, 2015 8:07 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Jubilee')

This is the first year I am growing Jubilee in my garden. I decided to try out various yellow or gold tomatoes and my local nursery was selling Jubilee plants this spring. I find Jubilee tastes exactly like Sunray to me as I am growing that one also.

But Jubilee has been pumping out ripe tomatoes day after day since the first of the season got ripe. Nice size and mostly pretty uniform in size. I find the taste mild and slightly sweet. I plan to be growing Jubilee again next season.

This appears to have a green throat, not a white one like the description says. I LOVE the scapes and branching on this cultivar! Such strong scapes and 5-way branching are what sold me on this one.

Sweet 'n' Neat Yellow (or really any of the Sweet 'n' Neat Varieties) is just made for growing in a small pot. The plant stays exceptional small and compact. but in spite of this gets loaded with cherry tomatoes. They taste really good and, as the name implies, the tomatoes are sweet.

By Newyorkrita on Aug 4, 2015 6:09 PM, concerning plant: Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo 'Northern States')

I grew this zucchini from seed this spring along with other varieties. My seeds came from Parks Seed and I decided to grow this one based on their claims that it was an early producer. Not for me. Northern States started to flower at the same time as my other zucchini varieties and actually produced zucchinis later than some of the others in my squash patch. All in all, I am not impressed by this variety and will not be growing it again.
