San Marzano Tomato Seedlings

Last week, I planted a few different varieties of seeds in my little non-peat greenhouse including what I hope to be one of the most important pizza-related plants:  my San Marzano Tomato seeds.

I woke up this morning to some good news:  they've started to sprout.
The seed package explains that I need to "thin" them out, so as they sprout, I've begun to pull out the smaller seedlings in the hopes that the one remaining will thrive.  If all goes as planned, by the time spring comes around, we'll have 9 healthy San Marzano plants that can head into our garden (and maybe  one or two to share with family, too.).

Now, all I need to do is to start to collect some ash from the fireplace to add to the soil.
