Diary 4/11/12

It was either pouring or sunny all day with some mountain top rumbling thunder this afternoon.  Made two batches of soil for a transplanting session coming up in a few days and a little transplanting of tomato babies in the meantime.  If you grow your own onion starts, or even if you buy some from the garden shop, it is a great thing to trim them back to encourage root growth.  This also makes them more manageable when transplanting; the spindly tops won't be so apt to fall over.  The increased roots of course make better transplants and tougher plants to go out and face life without their buddies right next to them.
