Bubba absolutely adores being outside. He simply cannot get enough. So he's been a little bummed out that he hasn't been able to play outside the last few days. He has a very curious and inquisitive nature so outdoor time is his chance to explore, dig and just take it all in.
As a simple reminder to us both that spring would soon be near, I enlisted his help to get our tomato seeds started inside. He mixed the seed starting mix together, helped me fill the cells and sowed each seed. He could not get enough. When we finished, he piled all the dirt in the container into a mound and declared it his castle.
As an aside: I have a question some of the more experience gardeners may know the answer to...
I am growing Amish Paste heirloom tomatoes. I chose heirloom tomatoes because I wanted to save some seeds to sow next year. That being said, I have some leftover hybrid tomato seeds from last year that will still germinate. If I grow them both, is it possible for the hybrid to contaminate the heirloom and cause the seeds not to be true to type? If anyone can answer this for me, it would be much appreciated!
