Today in the 80* heat, I set out four of my super early tomato seedlings. They have grown into such nice little plants. I planted one Cherokee Purple, one Box Car Willie and two Ultra Early Beaver Lodge plants.
I set-up Wall-O-Water plant protectors for the first time. Not so bad to set up. But I had a few problems.
First, I don’t normally space tomato plants out as much as is needed to fit the wall-o-water’s. I realized this after planting the whole row of plants and I had to dig them and space more.
Second, I don’t know why I can,t remember that you have to turn the hose valve the to the left to turn it off. I repeatedly turn it to the right and soak myself, which was nice in the heat- but muddy. Suppose I can’t blame the wall-o-waters for this!
Third, it took me at least 15 minutes to fill up each, so setting up four took a while. And leaning over them was hard on the back. Time for some Advil.
