27 Comments


sorry I just breathed a bug
in or something hi everyone and happy Monday welcome to the live stream and oh
here comes a mac down the stairs to join us
it is a cool and cloudy day here and we’re supposed to get some rain in this
week in California so really excited about that we haven’t had rain for quite
a while and not much rain this year they’re saying California is back in the
drought so we really really need some rain so if you’re here in Southern
California enjoy the rain that’s coming this week it is gonna green up the
garden and really make the flowers on the hill pop you can see the nasturtiums
are starting to trail down over the garden beds and I just put this nice
heavy-duty trellis and a couple weeks ago it’s a beautiful trellis from
Gardener’s and the nasturtiums are starting to climb so really excited
about that the poppies will start coming out in the rain the rain just refreshes
and kind of just brings the garden to life so thank you so much for joining me
a lot of you in the chat early appreciate you taking time out of your

join us here for a little bit of California sunshine
Lisa J hi everyone Karen Stephens my first time ever starting seeds indoors
and Karen you are gonna absolutely love it you can grow so many wonderful
varieties of vegetables when you start your seeds indoors and you can see Mac’s
back there is looking for lizards he loves to chase him or eating the grass
or something like that but he likes to chase the lizards and he thinks he can
catch him in the the stone walls there Jana from Canada McKee Mischka Smith
hello juanita hello Sandra hello it’s spring here in North
Carolinaa that’s awesome Sandra I’m sure you guys are so excited spring do you guys
realize that spring is a week from Thursday so it’s just about ten days
away great time to be starting your seeds indoors and really getting that
garden started so over the weekend we posted a video on how and when to
transplant those in the indoor seedlings into larger containers if you’re not
quite ready to get them out in your garden beds I showed step-by-step how to
do that so if your seedlings are at the point where you think they just might
need transplanting go back and watch that video join in on the Spring Garden
Series there’s lots of great information there and today I thought I would delve
a little bit deeper in the into the transplanting issue and talk about some
do’s and don’ts for transplanting your indoor seedlings because you really want
to give those seedlings the best chance of success so that when you’re ready to
get them out in your garden beds they’re gonna be nice and strong and healthy
have good roots and be ready to grow you some really wonderful vegetables so we
are actually before we jump right into that to today’s topic I’m going to read
a viewer of the week comment and from time to time I’d like to read a comment
that was especially inspiring from YouTube we’re from Instagram or from
Facebook even give that person a shout-out and just a little bit of
encouragement to keep on growing your garden and keep on doing the great job
that you’re doing so this comment was from our weekend
video on transplanting and it’s from Laurie LaRue C and I don’t know if she’s
here today but Laurie if you’re here today let us know and congratulations on
being viewer of the week and she says that she’s in New York zone 5b so far
she started onions rosemary lavender six varieties of peppers broccoli Brussels
sprouts and some flowers in early February so she is really going to town
Tomatoes last week twelve different varieties the veggies veggies I started
in February are fairly slow growing and aren’t ready for transplanting yet but
they are doing great and most have their first true leaves which is always really
exciting thank you for the timing of your seed starting series and I always
know my next steps before I can prepare it with supplies and timing I started
fertilizing last week and everything is looking healthy and strong
you’re supporting guidance has inspired me to grow my veggies from seed for the
first year I’m so excited to try all new varieties of veggies and share with my
family you’re an amazing teacher who keeps it real sharing success and
failure thank you from the bottom of my heart so Lori first off I want to say
I’m so proud of you for getting so many different kinds of vegetables going and
wanting to share those with your family wanting to grow food healthier for your
family and just enjoying being out in the garden Oh Thank You Christy I’ll get
to that super Chad just a moment so congratulations Lori on being a viewer
of the week and I’m really glad the videos are helping I love to hear that
that really helps keep camera guy and I motivated and going to hear that kind of
feedback so thank you so much for taking the time to share and let’s go back and
check that super chat that is let me see if I can find it here oh here we go
it is from grace Holland hi grace thanks for being on here today and grace super
chatted $2 and she says thanks for the info on drip irrigation grace I’m so
glad that you’re able to make you good use of that info we posted that video I
think it was a week ago and drip irrigation if you live in an area where
you don’t get a lot of water it’s definitely the way to go we’ll save you
time save you money and just really help your garden get the water that it needs
to be productive so thank you so much grace I really appreciate your support
there so okay guys let’s jump in and the first this is actually a don’t for
transplanting your indoor seedlings is don’t transplant them too early now let
me just back up a little bit what I’m talking about transplanting I’m talking
about if your garden beds aren’t ready like we talked about on the video over
the weekend if you’ve got cool other veggies in like I do or if it’s still
too cold wherever you live maybe you’re still waiting for it to warm up but
maybe you have it past your last frost it yet so sometimes we do need to
transplant our seedlings that were growing indoors into larger containers
and go back and watch the video for all the info on that so for example here
this is a seedling that was started on January the 19th
so it’s about six weeks along and it’s getting quite tall and quite lanky the
clues we talked about are looking for roots coming out and looking for three
or four sets of true leaves this definitely needs transplanted into a
larger container so we did that in the video on Saturday released on Saturday
here’s one of the the tomatoes I’ve already transplanted now as we talked
about in the video you want to wait until they have three or four sets of
true leaves so here we have one set of true tomato leaves we have two sets
three sets and then another set coming out the top here now I had someone ask
me or post on Instagram a picture of a couple of seedlings that only had their
little baby leaves like this one right here and they were telling me that
they’re going to be transplanting their ceilings and that seedlings just had
these little baby leaves so don’t do that guys don’t do it too early you want
to wait till your plants are good and established either in the peat pellets
or in little containers they don’t need transplanting at just the baby leaf
stage if they only have this teeny tiny baby leaf they don’t need it yet and
you’re also going to disturb the roots of the plant and disturb the plant
itself and at that young stage they just don’t have the strength to possibly a
withstand a transplanting so you don’t need to do it until they have three or
four sets of true leaves and you see their roots coming out the bottom so on
this one here you do see some roots coming out the bottom but it’s still a
pretty young seedling these were started about three weeks ago they only have one
set of true leaves and two sets of true leaves so there really no need to
transplant them yet they’re just too small and I’m hoping that I don’t have
to transplant them but they’ll be able to stay in here about three to four
weeks longer and then by the time by that time my garden beds will be ready
and I’ll be able to pop them out in the garden beds so don’t transplant your
seedlings too early there’s just no need to let them grow into strong healthy
seedlings and be you know about six weeks in the in the larger pellets
Roots and three or four sets of true leaves before you transplant them so
just keep that in mind as you’re going out throughout the as you’re going
throughout the transplanting process now I did have a question oh yes
so one thing that you guys I want to let you guys know and I did mention this in
the video on Saturday is that throughout this spring garden series we are working
our way through my book there are pictures of everything in here pretty
much everything that I talked about we find the chapter here pretty much
everything I talked about in the videos are written down here for you in my book
so you can use this as a reference out in the garden so maybe you can go back
and watch the video again maybe you can take this outside you can see pictures
of the roots of the leaves of everything you need to know of starting to rain
step-by-step processes so grab this and use it as a resource that’s exactly why
I wrote it so you have everything written down for you
some people learn through video some people learn through I’m seeing things
written down and some people learn through both I feel like the more input
I have the better so grab this book over my website calikimgardenandhome.com
and I paired it with the Spring Garden Seed Collection save yourself some money and get going for as inexpensively as
possible so great resource for you to refer back to as you’re growing
throughout the spring garden season okay let me jump back here into the chat and
check out any questions comments things that are going on here and let’s see
here everything some flowers and more our moderator is posting some video
links and things like that in the chat so make sure you take advantage of those
to get all the information that you need and sister Marcella says I just realized
I have seed started for 29 different peppers hot sweet and bell 29 Wow you’re
going to town there with the peppers you’re gonna have plenty for salsa
pepper jelly all kinds of stuff a great job getting them going and hopefully you
have space in your garden for them as well it’s gonna be a lot of fun okay
let’s see Tiny Tim seeds germinated learn to grow that’s fabulous I love
Tiny Tim’s they’re great dwarf tomato a great container variety if you don’t have a
lot of space okay Pam Jones been having trouble finding the worm tea in my area
looks like I may have to order it ok yes go on to Vermisterra.com Pam and use
my code calikim you can get a 10% discount on that and they do have some
free shipping specials there tea is excellent I highly recommend it I’ve
used it my garden for about four years now and really seen some great results
so make sure you take advantage of that discount code to get yourself a discount
on that and they are very and fast with shipping as well okay sweet potted your
gardening hello well peas grow well in bright shade indirect light um sweet pot
edger they do need a couple hours of sunlight a day and they’ll grow best in
the cool weather so if you can get them three to four hours of sunlight a day
they still will grow in in direct sunlight I have some up here on my hill
I don’t get a lot of sunlight on my kill in the wintertime they will grow but
they will grow very very slowly and you won’t get as many peas off them so give
it a go as long as the temperatures are under seventy-five degrees they’re going
to do well once the temperature goes like 75 into the 80s they do start to
dry from the bottom up and that’s just a response to the hot weather they don’t
do well in hot weather they’re definitely a cool weather vegetable ok
Nisha your tomato plant died I’m so sorry to hear that I was trying to
overwinter it ok yeah sometimes it just gets too cold and it works sometimes
overwintering will work and sometimes it won’t so it really just depends on the
cold exposure if you get frost in your area and what kind of sunlight um you
get I’ve got a couple that over wintered right in the middle of my garden that
are in the sunniest spot in my garden and they’re doing very well but I had
others that died in other sections that didn’t get as much sunlight okay
clarice question in your last video about transplanting you didn’t separate
your peppers will you separate them when they go into your garden or leave them
together great question Clarisse and peppers
actually grow very very well close together I may max having fun with
the birds in front of me here what I may end up doing Clarice is separating them
and moving them maybe just you know maybe six inches or so apart but they
actually grow really well together I have grown peppers right next to each
other even that close as I showed in the video many many times and they do very
very well they actually kind of like to have their leaves touching because then
what that what that does is it shades the pepper fruit themselves from getting
Sun scald which they do tend to get in the really hot weather so tomatoes you
definitely do need to separate and I like to grow my tomatoes a foot or two
apart but peppers kind of experiment and see
what works for you someone else asked me about squash if I was gonna trim off I
also showed in fact I have it right here I have my squash seedling that I
transplanted and it has already grown I by leaps and bounds I transplanted this
I think it was last Wednesday or Thursday when I filmed that video it’s
already growing like crazy I have two different squash seedlings in here and I
don’t like to separate these because squash don’t like to have their roots
disturbed so I’m just gonna leave these together I’m probably just gonna grow
them together I’ve grown squash fairly close together too and had great success
with it so you can experiment with it um you could I could clip off one of the
seedlings once I get it planted or even right now but I’m just gonna leave them
in and see how it goes and since I’ve had good success with it in the past and
experimented with that method I’m gonna do it again this year okay here Jamie do
you direct so your nasturtiums thank you enjoy all your tips and tricks okay yes
I do I direct so nasturtiums I don’t start them from seed indoors they tend
to do better when you direct sow them right in the garden bed but believe it
or not guys I have not planted actual nasturtium seeds for about two to three
years these are all receded from last year and from the year before here in my
climate they reseed very very easily when you grow nasturtiums they produce
seed pods or seeds and they just kind of spill all over the place
a lot of times I even have to collect a lot of the nasturtiums seeds when I pull
these out because there’s just so many of them and there’s no way I could
possibly grow that many nasturtiums so I direct seed them right in my garden beds
they are very frost sensitive plants so make sure you plant nasturtiums after
your last frost date but they will grow so easily a lot of times I even have to
trim them back this garden bed over here I want to be planting in probably in a
month or so so I ought to trim those back and just
kind of keep them tidied up a little bit okay let’s talk about the next item here
and it would be a do so we first we had a don’t don’t transplant too early the
next one is a doo-doo baby your newly transplanted seedlings they
can undergo something called transplant shock when they’re when their first
transplant and if you’re not familiar with that what that is it’s just a
response to their roots being disturbed by transplanting them then being moved
to a new location they have that you need a little they need a little bit of
time to make that transition and sometimes they’ll kind of look wilted
sometimes they’re not going to be very perky they might take a few days to kind
of perk up so definitely baby your your newly
transplanted seedlings don’t try and plant them in the shade or
you know transplant with an umbrella if it’s not a cloudy day and don’t put them
in the direct sunlight as soon as you have trying to transplanted them it’s
just too bright for them too intense you want to kind of baby in for a couple of
days make sure you’re checking on them every day don’t skip a watering don’t
skip a fertilizing and just kind of baby them along and give them a few days to
perk up and before you know it after a few days you can kind of start the
transition period whether you’re moving them into the Sun and then back indoors
and they’re gonna perk up and just look beautiful so if you guys watch the video
over the weekend you saw that a couple of mine we’re looking pretty darn droopy
let me find one of mine here well this is one of the tomatoes I transplanted
and it was a little bit droopy for a couple of days you can see here it’s
still a little bit droopy so – outdoors in the Sun this morning so
just hang in there with those and they’re gonna perk up in no time in fact
let me turn my camera around and show you guys some lettuce that I
transplanted just last week and I actually transplanted it when it was
kind of warm out so it was it was pretty droopy I covered it with some shade
cloth back there just to kind of baby it along for a couple of days it’s
uncovered right now because it’s a little bit cloudy I wanted to get some
sunlight but as long as the weather stays cool here which it’s supposed to
in the next few weeks the lettuce will perk up and I should be able to get a
quick crop in before the temperatures really heat up and it’s just too hot for
the lettuce so do baby your newly transplanted seedlings just to minimize
transplant shock and even keep them under grow lights for a couple of days
to kind of help them along so let’s jump into the chat here see what questions we
have and let’s see what’s going on here okay Becky in Texas so excited to start
hardening off some seedlings hoping to transplant next week need another three
to four weeks for my tomatoes onions and lettuce are in the ground thanks for
sharing your garden so great job Becky I’m glad that you’re checking on the
timing you know what you want to do if you if you’re just jumping into the
spring garden series is back up about four to six weeks from your last frost
date start your seeds indoors about then you don’t want to start too early
because then your your house or your grow lights overrun with seedlings I
know we’ve all made that mistake today so great job Becky and I bet you’re so
excited to get out there in the garden once it gets warm enough and get your
beautiful vegetables planted okay let’s see here
question is Baker Creek a good place to buy seeds I’m also getting started to
plant seeds in the greenhouse yes I’ve purchased for Baker Creek seeds
many many times they do have a great variety of unusual and rare and heirloom
seeds but I also have a seed shop myself for those of you didn’t know and
something unique about my online store which you can find at calikimgardenandhome.com so I have everything put together into
seed collections so it makes it super easy if you’re just getting started have
no idea what to buy their group to buy I’m growing season and by type of
vegetable so for example the spring garden seed collection if you’re just
getting started is twelve varieties for a basic spring garden tomatoes peppers
cucumbers greens things like that and the fall garden seed collection which
actually happens to be 50% off right now the last day you can get these for 50%
off and I’m almost completely sold out of them you can grab these with the code
spring over at calikimgardenandhome.com and again like I’ve been mentioning
don’t let this fool you these are cool weather vegetables you have 15 varieties
in here but you can plant in the early spring in a lot of different gardening
zones so check out my seed collections and it really helps support the garden
content that we put out on this channel and a lot of you are growing with my
seeds as well and I really really appreciate it okay crystal am what do
you recommend starting right now in Southern California crystal you can grow
just about anything right now go back and watch the starting how to start
seeds indoors video that was posted maybe three or four weeks ago and the
spring garden series and everything you planted in there you can plant right now
in California I wouldn’t necessarily recommend planting broccoli cauliflower
brussel sprouts some of the cool other vegetables that take quite a while to
grow and mature because we’re going to be getting into some hot weather
probably in the next month to six weeks or so if you want to grow cool weather
vegetables grow some quick growing crops right now in California good ones would
be lettuces peas radishes anything you can get a harvest on in about six weeks
before the hot weather hits I just planted some arugula a couple weeks ago
how do you guys saw this on my Instagram it’s way back there in the back and that
big smart pot there just pop it up here and I had the space there and I wanted
to get a quick crop of green sorry about that I wanted to get a quick crop crop
of greens before the warm weather hits and I thought arugula was a great way to
go it grows really fast it’s delicious zippy green and that’s in my fall garden
seed collection and when you get for that sale price it ends up being
about 67 cents a seed a seed packet so 15 packets in here it’s a really good
deal okay Katherine hello Katherine nice to see you on here today my lettuce
nasturtiums poppies and sunflowers are all from the CaliKim seed collections
and they are growing great thank you so much Catherine for the feedback those
are some of my favorite flowers to grow and that’s why I put them in those seed
collections we have to bring on the pollinators one for cool weather flowers
the nasturtiums and poppies and then we have a warm weather
bring on the pollinator sea collection that has borage gosh : no i’m it’s
escaping me at the moment but we have five warm weather flowers in there and
then the sunflower one so sunflower collection so i’m really glad that those
are doing well okay Gregory a gardening zone in Greece
please explain the difference because it’s different in Greece
I believe the zones are specific to the US and Canada here in the US and Canada
we have different gardening zones that just help you figure out what to plant
when and you can find those on the I think it’s called the u.s. hardiness
zone website u.s. someone could post that link that would be great as far as
zones in Europe I’m not familiar with those I don’t believe they have things
separated out by gardening zones but if anyone has that information and could
help him out that would be wonderful okay let’s see here Luz how are you lose
will you do another strawberry and lettuce tower I want to start one but I
don’t know when I should start and where to get bare-root strawberries lose I
what I’m going to be doing this year with my towers is I have do have a
strawberry tower that has I need to replace the plant strawberries rolling
only lasts about 3 to 4 years and I have one tower that has not been very
productive for the past year or so so I’m I’m gonna be doing redoing that
tower with fresh plants I know there are several sources online that you can
purchase bare-root strawberries if anybody has the name of the good website
please post it here I myself prefer to purchase the strawberries in the
six-packs which we are pretty red available here at local garden centers
fairly inexpensively just because I’m not very patient and I like to get a
crop it girl going as soon as I can so I’m actually gonna be heading out
this week to try and find some strawberry plants and hopefully be
redoing my strawberry tower very soon but I’ve got a couple great videos on
that so go back and watch those I’ve got one I think from a year ago and maybe
one from two years ago and you could pretty much get those
started anytime especially here in California and I’m sorry Luz I don’t
remember what state you’re in I know I should know that cuz I’ve sent you
several different things but those I would go ahead and get going right now
okay let me jump here into the next tip here do’s and don’ts for transplanting
so so far we have don’t transplant your seedlings too early do baby your newly
transplanted seedlings number three actually already mentioned this don’t
transplant in full Sun so when your if you take your seedlings outside and
you’re here you have a little transplant station set up outdoors like I did the
other day make sure you’re doing it in a shaded area put a number all up do it
under a tree don’t do it in full Sun because those little again those little
baby transplants if you’ve had them growing inside and you’re bringing them
outdoors that transplant them you’re gonna be disturbing the roots you’re
gonna be pulling them out of containers peeling off the netting from the
seedling from the jiffy pellets and they’re gonna be a little stressed out
so if they’re in bright Sun you’re gonna see them wilt and droop very quickly so
again baby them transplant them in the shade give them the best chance possible
of avoiding the transplant shock and then they’ll be able to perk up that
much quicker and grow into strong healthy seedlings so I did already
mention that so we’re gonna go ahead and mention my last do or don’t here which
this happens to be a do got to have the positive along with what don’t along
with what mistakes not to make right and this last one is do start back ups after
transplanting and this is so important because in the transplanting process it
is possible that you could lose some plants and we’re gonna minimize that as
much as we can but it is possible that you could lose some plants we always
want be ready for that and have some backups
going so I’m actually us one of my projects to
do this week because I’ve got a lot more plants to transplant indoors that I’m in
the process of moving outside I’ve got to get all of these little seedlings
transplanted you can see that they are definitely in need of larger containers
and I’ve already got some backups going but um I don’t want to I want to get
more going and start more different varieties so get some more going you’re
gonna be Coakley clearing out some of your seed starting space starting to
harden off your vegetables over the next several weeks so get some going either
in the little peat pellets and the little containers with soil go back and
watch all the seed starting videos that we in the spring garden series and
definitely get backups going that way all along all along the way if your
seedlings die once you get them outside or if you have a frost
and they get left outside any kind of storms come up that pests the animals
get them there’s all kinds of things that could happen you’re not going to be
left without seedlings to plant in your garden so I always say have a few
backups going and you definitely don’t want to place all of your eggs in one
basket okay guys so let me jump into the chat here we’ve got a few minutes left
in the live stream this has been a lot of fun here today but we’re gonna breeze
through as many more questions as we can in the next five minutes or so all right
let’s see here is it too late justice from shayla is it too late to start
spinach kale and lettuce in Jack’s Florida okay not not real familiar with
Jack with where Jack’s Florida is I’m imagining that it’s going to start
getting warm here in another six weeks six to eight weeks so what I’d like you
to do is look at the principles of cool weather vegetables versus warm with
their vegetables and then evaluate what the weather is like in your area so cool
weather vegetables do well in temperatures of 75 degrees or under and
warm weather vegetables do well in temperatures of 75 to 90 degrees so
again I’ve got a whole section here in my book on cool weather versus warm
weather vegetables and that the temperatures that they grow
just under so take a look at that and then evaluate what the weather is is in
your area and if you have enough time to get a harvest of those vegetables before
the weather changes so that’s just kind of a couple good principles that you can
go by so that you don’t always have to find a specific answer to that question
but just know cool weather versus warm weather vegetables the different ideal
growing conditions and then you can evaluate based on your area when they
plan so Kristi thank you so much thanks for that okay um Vernice Valerie thanks
for all the great information you’re very welcome sister Marcel when transplanting
grapevines and berry bare roots is it safe to use a larger a large container
um I’ve never done bare roots let’s see I did plant some bare root berries and I
planted them right into the ground yeah you could actually I actually have been
cutting off and doing some cuttings of some my berries and I planted them in
five gallon containers that’s the largest I’ve done with that but I think
it might be better to to transplant it in a smaller type of container like a
five gallon or a one or a two gallon kind of get them bigger and stronger so
they’re not too terribly overwhelmed and then you know as they get stronger and
bigger you can transplant them into larger containers as you as they grow okay Rebecca what should I do if my
lettuce seedlings are at a halt and are growing outside help
okay Rebecca it could be it’s possibly either too hot for them or maybe it’s
getting a little bit chilly for them if it gets above seventy five eighty
degrees they’re gonna struggle in the heat so I would use shape cloth I’ve got
shape cloth I think I showed you a little earlier on my lettuce seedlings
right here and that definitely does help them in the heat sometimes also if
they’re not well established and it’s too cold they’re just gonna grow really
slowly I had that experience as well with some lettuce right over in
I plant her right there there’s some lettuce right in front or kind of in the
middle of that planter and for a while here our temperatures were in the 30s at
night it wasn’t getting a ton of Sun it was growing very very slowly and just
recently it’s warmed up probably 50 60 sometimes 70s even 80s during the day
and those plants have really taken off so just be patient wait for the right
temperature you could also fertilize it with some good organic fertilizer and
that will hopefully help it take off as well okay let’s see if there’s more
questions here Tanya hi Angela Angela’s Gardens since
my Tiny Tim’s are still quite tiny after three weeks I don’t recall this last
year shouldn’t they be at least 5 inches by now
Angela again it really depends on the growing conditions so things do grow at
different speeds depending on the warmth depending on the sunlight for example
you guys are watching the spring garden series Joel and I started our little
seedling tray at exactly the same time and kids are probably about twice as
large maybe one and a half times as large as mine mine got a little bit too
warm it got very warm in the location that I had them I had them my heat mat
and they started to their growth really started to slow down
they were probably possibly even over 90 degrees where they were growing so I
realized that I needed to adjust the situation I took them off the heat mat
helped them cool off and now they’re really starting to take off so just hang
in there be patient make sure that you’re
following all the tips as far as having in the correct distance from the grow
lights and watering fertilizing all the things we’ve been talking about in the
Spring Garden series and hopefully they will take off very soon okay let’s see
here can i transplant or direct Soapy’s three weeks before the last frost sweet
pottage err okay um peas are one of those vegetables that you can plant into
the ground as soon as you can work the soil once your soil kind of thaws out a
little bit you can get in there and work the soil go ahead and plant your pea
seeds and then they’ll take off as soon as the temperature is right so yes you
absolutely can peas good to go thank you very much cliff
okay how many tomato seedlings should I have in one five-gallon container okay
Alyssa I I really only like to plant the smaller varieties of tomatoes in my five
gallon containers actually didn’t bring one down here with me today the larger
varieties of tomatoes I prefer to plant in a 15 or 20 gallon container got some
right in front of me here I just planted that tan smart pots right in front of me
actually has some Tomatoes growing that have overwintered and I just planted a
new tomato in there last week the five gallons I’d like to do the Tiny Tim’s or
a cherry type tomato and I usually will plant for the Tiny Tim’s I can get away
with two of the other like a regular-sized cherry tomato I will just
do one just to make sure they have enough room to grow you can do more if
you want but you might not get as much production off of them okay let’s see
here any more questions in the chat here the chat is just flying by so I
appreciate you guys hanging out here with me today we will do one or two more
questions let’s see I’ve not seen a lot more questions here I see a lot of
things flying by about bare roots I did try bare roots several years ago

  1. Missed the live chat sadly. I will be starting my seeds on the 15th of March, so I will be needing to transplant my tomatoes and peppers for definite at a later time, so this has been a greatly recieved episode. Also, I was wondering if you would like some of the UK's rain? We have a lot! Dear Mac with his haircut, he looks like a puppy! 😍

    Are you transplanting your indoor seedings yet?  Thanks for watching!

  3. My lovely and I have started seedlings and growing our own food using an aquaponics system and a bunch of minnows. I started watching you last spring when I did my first pot garden and if I remember right, my first video of yours is the garden kit using a small space.

  4. Great video thanks for sharing with us…my dinning room been took over with seeds and starters❤❤

  5. Sorry I missed the live video, but my wife had a hip replacement and I am her care giver, chef and therapist.

  6. My tomatoes and peppers are hardened off, but it is cooling down to mid to high 30’s at night so I keep them covered.

  7. Don’t see why, under the right conditions, and if roots aren’t disturbed, very young seedlings couldn’t successfully be transplanted. Seems like it would be more like direct seeding or planting sprouts, especially if they get spindly indoors. There’s a paper cup method where roots aren’t disturbed because bottom of cup comes off (mostly pre-cut) before planting, and cup stays in ground and disintegrates.

  8. Kim!!! 🙂 I missed you guys today but hola to all your viewers and you 😀 Just finishes the replay of today’s stream and watched the weekend video on the transplanting itself. Enjoying the rain rite now out here in Bajá and can’t wait to see how the garden reacts in the next couple of days! Love the stream and I’ll be on time next week for sure! As always, thanks for taking the time to be there for all of us, even us replay watchers…
