    Growing in #1 nursery pots

    First try at growing micro tomatoes.

    I hope the #1 nursery pots are, in fact,
    appropriate. I figured with plants 12”
    tall, they would be okay. I planted these
    in Fox Farms pottting soil amended with
    blood meal, fish meal, bone meal, alfalfa
    meal and mykos.

    In a box on wheels for ease of moving them
    around easily on the deck.

    Wow! Love your system that is totally mobile. Terrific! What are these plants? Just be ready, as some grow they may quickly outgrow this setup- or maybe they won't! Such is the dive into the world of micros. Keep us posted!

      Which product of FF did you use (ie: Ocean Forest, Happy Frog, etc)?

      If these are currently released micros, and not project micros, then you may be fine in those pots. Many of the currently existing micros do stay rather small. I had no issues with Red Robin in those last year.

        That's a good looking setup. What varieties are you growing? What is the size of the pots? I have come to the conclusion that I may be using pots that are a bit on the small size. Keep us posted on how they do.

          Thanks! Sorry I am a slacker about responding to your post.

          They did get to large to tend conveniently in the roller box.

            I used a bag of each mixed together. That works
            out to a 4:3 ratio of Happy Frog to Ocean Forest
            .

            If these are currently released micros, and not project micros, then you may be fine in those pots. Many of the currently existing micros do stay rather small. I had no issues with Red Robin in those last year.
            They are from Renaissance Farms, I think,
            and Bunny Hop Seeds (Heritage Seeds).

            Here are a few pics from two weeks ago. Plants have grown a
            little since then, and have lots of flowers and small fruits on them:

              Thanks. These are #1 nursery pots. Will post a list soon.
              These are two weeks old, so will update again soon.

                    Thanks, Sean.

                    It’s fun watching these grow.

                        Great to see you growing them all. Please make sure you report on the flavor quality of the different micros. I have not grown that many different stable micros. It would be good to know which ones have the most potential for crossing and realizing decent flavor.

                          I guess it's sort of a shotgun approach this season : )

                          I will definitely give them all a try.
                          Not sure how long it will take for these to
                          become ripe. I think all the plants have fruit
                          setting on them now.
