Still inside, of course, but the elder tomatoes are now 3 weeks old, and the younger ones just planted.
I'm trying tomato grafting for the first time!
Learning 1: grafting rootstock grows faster than anything I want to graft to it! Should have planted scions 5 days before rootstock...
In fact, yesterday was The Appointed Day for me to try grafting, and I had to throw out one of my two rootstock plants. At 21 days from seed it was too fat for my grafting clips. And the scions I planted in Dixie cups all failed. What I wanted was a grafted Buck's County tomato. But I decided to keep the only nice Buck's County tomato plant I had going, and just graft an artisan tiger stripe instead, because I had two nice plants of that... Wish me luck!
