It was an absolute pleasure serving and presenting at the 2015 Texas Master Gardener Conference in Belton, Texas. Kudos to Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company for sending me as an ambassador and teacher. I enjoyed attending and making new friends who have a passion for all things gardening.
Saving Heirloom Seed was my presentation this afternoon. The Master Gardeners were very attentive and had many questions. What an appreciative group!
It is time to plant our pansies in bowls and decorative pots.
Right on schedule, the Coyne and Hannah heirloom tomatoes were transplanted from the seed flats into cell packs.
I started some heirloom tomatoes seeds on April 4. Yesterday (April 7), three seeds had germinated in two seed flats. Today (April 8), seeds are popping up like crazy!!! The Coyne variety is far ahead of the Hannah tomato on germination. Providing the best soil temperature (75° (F)), stimulates germination. Plus, the seedlings are kept one inch from the bulbs in the light fixture.
It never ceases to amaze me, to see seeds pop out of the soil!!
I recently was invited to speak on the Urban Farm and Garden Podcast about Baker Creek and Heirloom Seeds.
Art Davidson may be heard at the 16:45 mark of the Podcast.
