Transplanting: A Tomatillo Adventure, Part 1 of 3

Transplanting: A Tomatillo Adventure, Part 1 of 3

If you are an experienced tomatillo gardener (unlike me), you might be wondering just how long it was before the lack of sufficient water, sufficient nutrients, or sufficient space forced me to transplant my tomatillos to bigger and better pastures. You might also be wondering exactly where I transplanted them to. Or you might be wondering if the peppers survived at all in the shade of those large vines. Well today is your lucky day because this is my tomatillo transplanting update!

Planting English Ivy

Alright, so last weekend was a holiday weekend, I finally had all the materials for the mason jars, I just needed to plant something in them. A few weeks ago, when I was still dreaming of all-inclusive tower kits, I bought a bunch of seeds for herbs and peppers and greens. Unfortunately, most of those require full sun to grow really well (or the grow light in the tower kit of course), and I don’t really get any full sun in my Pacific northwest abode. So, it was time to find some alternatives for my jars. I embarked on a journey to find seeds for house plants… only, that’s not actually a really common thing. Turns out house plants are easier to grow from cuttings than from seeds. Or nursery containers. With soil. Also, apparently very few places have seeds in the dead of winter. Who knew.
