So I have a back log of plants now. Some of my tomatoes are sucking the nutrients out of soil in their cells. I can definitely say Miracle Grow potting soil beats Jiffy seed starting mix. The Jiffy gave me water absorption problems and it has no fertilizer. The Miracle Grow absorbs water and the tomatoes in that product are nice and green. They are all getting liquid fertilizer as I write.
So what to do... well I can try to harden off my tomatoes in the seed trays. They should get 1 or 2 hours of early or late full sun. Even though it is cold, full afternoon sun can burn them. And yes a few leaves got burned. I used the translucent painter's plastic cloth again to block the full afternoon sun. I wanted the plants to get light and get wind blown. The burns came when I didn't use the plastic drop cloth.
