Germinated Tomato Starts

The Malaysian Dark Red eggplant are just forming their first true leaf.
The Aconcagua sweet peppers are also starting to form their true leaves.
The dainty Calabrese broccoli

Tomatoes are growing quickly.

Tomatoes tomatoes galore. About fifteen varieties were planted in peat pellets:
  • Costoluto Genovese
  • Ingegnoli Gigante Liscio
  • Pantano Romanesco
  • San Marzano Lungo #2
  • Break O Day
  • Granny Cantrell German Red
  • Jersey Giant
  • Riesentraube
  • Large Red Cherry
  • Beefsteak
  • Cosmonaut Volkov
  • Brandywine
  • Burpee Beefsteak
  • Djena Lee's Golden Girl
  • Red Grape
In eight days all the tomatoes have germinated except for the Large Red Cherry and the Beefsteak, which makes for over forty tomato sprouts.

Only two Calabrese broccoli have sprouted out of the twenty peat pellets that were planted, if the rest haven't sprouted in three days I'm going replant the broccoli with fresher seed.

The eggplant and tomato will need to be transplanted this week into their own individual cups.
