Tomato Growth

Here are a few pictures of our beautiful tomato babies sprouting their leaves and starting their journey to become big, healthy, fruit bearing food providers.


Above is what a tomato plant looks like when it first sprouts. In the germination room at the KC Irving Centre, which provides ideal germinating conditions for seeds, the time it took for the tomato seeds to begin sprouting and break ground was about a week. These first leaves are their seed leaves, or cotyledons.


As the seedlings continue to grow they develop their “true” leaves which vary depending on the variety of tomato.


As the tomato seedlings continue to grow they continue to sprout up, but they also grow new sets of leaves and bush out.


Believe it or not, this little guy will eventually grow to be several feet tall and produce pounds worth of tomatoes

Farm delivery! 👩🏻‍🌾 You may see our farm coordinator biking around Wolfville this summer and fall with a trailer full of produce. Yesterday it was used to transport our seedlings 🌱 from the K.C. Irving Center greenhouse down to the farm. See if you can spot our garden coordinator biking delicious veggie up to Wheelock Dining Hall this fall 🍂 🚴🏻‍♀️
We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! 🥬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌤. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! 🥬
