Broccoli and Tomatoes

I’m not feeling very good today, I thought yesterday that my kidney stone had passed, but now I think it just decided not to move yesterday.  But…

…look what happened to sprout up today – Broccoli!  Just one, I’m hoping the other is close behind!

I also repotted tomatoes after writing yesterday’s blog post.  They have their first true leaves coming in and have roots on the edge of their pellets too.  I did them the same way I did the cabbage and kale.

I planted two different varieties of tomato, one Sweet 100 and one Amana Orange.  I’m not a huge tomato fan, however I do like cherry tomatoes and Sweet 100 is my favorite, though it is a hybrid and not heirloom.  Amana Orange is an heirloom, and I bought seed from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company.  I’ve had Amana Orange before and they are good, not as acidic as most tomatoes and more fleshy, which is just how I like them.  I plan to try to keep the seed from them and continue to grow them year after year.

The only problem is that when I wrote down what I planted, I only wrote “tomato” so I don’t know for sure which is which!  They look a little different, but I won’t know for sure which is which until they have fruits.
