Regulating the temperatures in the greenhouse between freezing in the night and 100 degrees inside during the days, has me pulling a few strands out. Even though the days can be nice, between 64-70 degrees, it can still boil the poor plants in the greenhouse. I'm still not that good about getting outside and checking what the temp is inside, so a few times the tomatoes look withered.
The tomatoes are doing well, despite my ineptitude. They perk up when I get them water, so I guess they are some hardy varieties. It's probably a good thing that homesteading isn't my profession. I'm turning out to be a lazy farmer, and cold temps keep me housebound. NOT a stellar example for others?
And, in spite of my terrible reliability, the biggest tomato plant has put out (she of the black pot). I do shake them every time I see new flowers and that seems to be enough to get some fruit.
Now, I hope I can coddle them to maturity (still something I'm trying with my boys).
