Potting the little plantlets

The little plantlets inside need more space

We still get frost at night, so Tomato, Paprika and co has to stay inside. I have noticed that the plantlets I hat sown the second time are equally developed as the plantlets I had sown the first time. So I think the plantlets from the first sowing desperately need more space and I isolated and potted as many as I could still house inside.

In out Tiny House I do not have space for this, so these plantlets will be put into our caravan. During the day with the sun shining it is nice and warm and at night the caravan does not cool down so much that it is a problem for the plantlets. There are only 2 window spaces, so I can not isolate and pot all the plantlets. Since the indoor greenhouse had the most plantlets close to each other, I took this outside on a not to windy and relatively warm afternoon. In the morning I had prepared watering trays with pots which I had already filled with soil.

I started by potting the tomato plants and planted them a bit deeper while I am at it. Then I potted a lot of the chilli plantlets, since these hat the most plantlets in a small space. I could not give all of the chilli plantlets there own pot, so the remaining plantlets I divided in the spot where they where and where the tomatoes where.

Then I did the sage plantlets and left 2 in the indoor greenhouse. The sage plantlets snapped off ratter quickly, so in future I will not sow them like this again. These need to be sown separately so they can grow to a certain size before they need to be handled. Finally, although they where still very small, I potted the camomile.

Then with the help of the children everything moved to the caravan. With this action 2 pots with camomile landed on the ground and the small plantlets where lost. You always have to expect losses.

And these are still in the Tiny House. Luckily it does not take long until the plantlets can go outside.
