Trays of Seedlings

I have quite a few of seedlings started.   Most are tomatoes.   The older ones are starting their second leaves and will be ready to transplant soon.  I usually wait until the 3rd set of leaves is started.   I will transplant them to peat pot.  I prefer peat pots because it reduces the transplant shock when they are planted in the ground and minimizes the use of plastic which ends up in the trash.  They are outside in the full sun which will make for a much stronger plant.   Luckily I am in southern california where it will be 80 degrees today so if you in colder part of the country, you will need to start them indoors in a sunny window.
