TPS update

All of the TPS (true potato seeds) have now sprouted and are living their days outside, soaking up the  sun, and spending the chillier nights indoors.  I’m still so excited about these things!  Really, you have no idea how many photos I take of these little seedlings, just to ooh and ahh over them.  I know, I know.  Just be happy I don’t post them every day.

Just smile and nod politely.

But aren’t they cute??

“Yes, dear.”

      Ah, gotcha. Just the ol’ trench way, hilling up as they grow. We actually have dirt here so I’m excited to be able to do it that way.

    […] all had great germination and it’s now time to separate them into individual cells.  I have three pots of eight varieties to separate.  This weekend, I discovered that none of my cell packs are to be found.  I’m not sure if […]
