Alright, the time has come to scale the mountain, fight the dragon, and kiss the guy - we're wrapping up this adventure. The last part of the transplanting process was to provide lighting for the tomatillos, and of course, that ended up being more difficult than it should have been.
Alright, so the tomatillo plants have been successfully transplanted and no one died! They even stayed pretty green despite relying solely on the window for light in February. In case you've never visited the Pacific Northwest in February, the amount of light coming through the thick layer of gray clouds is roughly the same amount of light given off by a dying glowstick. It's not technically even enough light for humans which is why so many of us have a medical vitamin D deficiency and are forced to take supplements. So I was very thankful the tomatillos were still alive.
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!
