It's finally Memorial Day!
Here in Zone 5, we're so ready to transplant tomatoes!
And Friends, transplanting is deceptively simple. Doing it well is the difference between harvesting a bit and harvesting abundance.
Here is exactly how we transplant tomatoes, after years of trial and error, and I hope these keys surround you with great abundance!
First things first:
Friends, resist planting too early.
It's counter-intuitive in our short seasons to not plant warm-season plants like tomatoes as early as possible, but here's the thing: Young, healthy transplants yield greater abundance compared to older, stressed transplants. Every time.
Also, think of tomatoes, basil, peppers and other warm season crops as ‘cold-sensitive’ rather than ‘frost-sensitive.’

Join us Thursday, March 21st at 6:30! I'll be sharing the keys you need to successfully sprout your ginger and set yourself up for growing gorgeous abundance this season, from beginning to end.
Friends, we're constantly experimenting, pushing the envelope of what can be grown here in our short seasons. Peanuts? With the right seeds, easy. Sesame. Super easy. Chia? A remarkable plant, though (sigh) she will never flower for us here, our days are too long.
Fresh, baby ginger is sweet yet savory, lusciously melting in your mouth and nearly fiber-free, entirely unlike the mature ginger shipped thousands of miles, what most of us have known as ginger our whole lives....
First, a soon-to-be not-so-secret for you!
I'm in the marvelous midst of creating Fruition's first online courses, YAY!!! This post is just a fraction of what I'll be sharing to set you up for success in our Container Gardening Mini-Course. If you'd like to be first in line when our courses open in February, let me know and when they're ready I'll send you an invitation with a special thank you :)
Without further ado!
Friends, sowing well-adapted varieties makes organic gardening SO much easier.
In any size garden, on any scale farm.
Container gardens, especially.
Two main factors:
How much space does this variety take up? Some varieties are more compact than others, making them more optimal for container gardening.
Will this variety thrive with less than optimal nutrients and less even watering? Both are realities of most container gardens, so starting with resilient seeds makes all the difference.
