The answer was that they represent some of the different methods that gardeners use to decide when to plant out their tomato seedlings into the garden.
Some Gardeners consider it a great achievement if you can harvest a ripe tomato before Christmas. Many of you have your own traditions when it comes to planting out tomato seedlings:
– Traditionalists like my Grandmother say to plant them out on Melbourne Cup Day.
– Others prefer to plant when the Waxing Moon appears in October.
– Some naturists (or naturalists?) wait until they can comfortably sit with a bare bottom in the vegetable garden.
– Recent online discussion has suggested that due to climate change, Grand Final day might be a more appropriate day if you’re trying to get a head start.
Do you or your family have a traditional day for planting out tomato seedlings? When are you planning to plant out yours this year? Are you aiming to have a ripe tomato by Christmas day?
