This weekend, I potted up the tomatoes. They are not as far along as they normally are but I'm not overly concerned. They tend to grow really quickly once potted up, so much so that I've moved their sowing date up by at least a couple of weeks over the years as they were getting too big before I could transplant them outside.
This year, however, I had a few issues with germination. I'm not sure what was going on, but most of the seeds ended up on the tail end of what I would consider the normal germination time.

|This Chico III seedling, which was about 3" tall,|
now has most of it's stem buried in the soil
|Only about a 1/2" of the stem was buried,|
but even that little bit is bound to make a big difference.
