Growing Tomatoes!

I decided to try my hand at growing some vegetables this summer.

So why not start with my favourite veggie - the tomato! We decided to go with open-pollinated seeds and seedlings.

Seedling
We bought one seedling from this place in Saitama: http://www.seinousha.com/ .  We drove there, up to Saitama, to pick it up. It's a variety called アロイトマト (aroi tomato). I can't find much info about it in English. 

We transferred it over to a proper planter. Here it is in our garden now:


Seeds
We also bought some seeds, by delivery, from Noguchi Seeds: https://twitter.com/noguchiseed.  Those were delivered.

Here are the seeds:

We planted them into small pots, will share photos of those in the next blog post.
