    Thanx very much for the useful tips, and keep posting videos like this for those of us with not so green thumbs :’) This will be the first time that I have ever harvested vegies from seeds I have started. I have always overwatered them early on. Thanx again, Ed

  • webcajun says:

    @punkybill …I’ve also overwatered lots of little seedlings in the past and it will probably happen again from time to time. The weight of the cup tells you a lot about how much to water…….Donald

  • webcajun says:

    @bhauk …Not giving them enough light…..Donald

  • MrArtathart says:

    I have the wire shelf and clear plastic, But after I complete that…Do I still need to put it out in the sun? Couldnt I rig a heat amp like you use for baby chicks? Next, I have the jiffy posts just like you use. The 3 inch ones…..But where did you get those black plastic trays to hold the water? Any thoughts on what I could use or substatute it with??

  • webcajun says:

    @MrArtathart …Sunlight would be my first choice but folks grow great seedlings under a light as well. The trays (I call flats) can be found at any garden center or big box hardware. I’ve seen people use baking pans to start their seedlings in. Really anything that will not leak when you water……Donald

  • RodrigorReyes123 says:

    My tomato seedlings seemed to stop growing they have their first set of true leaves but they seem to be growing way to slow is that normal?

  • RodrigorReyes123 says:

    when should i transplant my tomatoes? I still think mine are to small for transplanting but i’m not sure

  • webcajun says:

    @RodrigorReyes123 …Tomatoes are usually ready to transplant in 6-8 weeks……Donald

    Very nice vidio awesome

  • webcajun says:

    @satellitetune …Thanks…….Donald

  • swanz199 says:

    Another great video. Thanks! I experimented this year with mixing half promix potting soil and half compost. They seem to like it. We just had a cold snap
    but fortunately stayed above freezing.

  • webcajun says:

    @swanz199 …This year I mostly used my compost and worm castings. Worked pretty well……Donald

  • qusaisaher says:

    if i worked at this speed i will kill my self , specially when you have 400 tomatoes seed to plant

  • jamisonbrooks says:

    Love all your videos how do you make your starter mixe

  • webcajun says:

    @jamisonbrooks … My favorite is 2/3 compost, 1/3 worm castings. All compost also works very well. I like adding perlite to keep the mix from compacting……Donald

  • thomasrj42 says:

    Thanks for all the videos. I just started my garden this year and have learned a lot from you. If I had known about your vids before I planted, my garden would have been even better than it was. It still turned out good and I can’t wait for next spring to start again.

  • webcajun says:

    @thomasrj42 … Glad everything turned out well for you. After a couple of seasons you’ll be a pro……Donald
