Just as tiny seedlings must struggle against the weather and nature to survive and finally provide nourishing fruit, so must we also brave the storms of life to become fruit-bearing children of God: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
Here is an update on the tomato seedlings: Tomato Seedling Surgery 2.0
I finally got a chance today to transfer my tomato sprouts to their grown-up pots. It seemed fitting, since it is finally spring and yet another snowstorm is bearing down on us. I only had three pods that sprouted anything, but those three pods gave me six plants. I've never had all of the seeds planted in the pods start growing, so I decided to split those plants into their own pots.
I took my first peat pod and seedling and cut the netting around the peat. I pulled it down, but didn't pull it off (there was no need-there was only one seedling in there). Simply fill the planting pot about half full with planting soil, stick your seedling inside, and fill the rest of the way with dirt. I like to bury a little extra of the seedling to give it added stability.
