My seedlings and sweater

Dear Mom,
It looks like I'll have plenty of tomato plants to share.
I'm gonna have to thin these out.That makes me a little nervous. I'm afraid I'll kill them all when I do that.

The knitting on my needles is no longer a scrunched up blue blob and is now a sweater. It is just what I hoped it would be. In fact I like it so much that I am wearing it with all the loose ends hanging. I still need to knit a belt for it, but then it will be done and may not leave my body until it is too hot outside to wear it.

Before I put it on my body, I did manage a very brief photo session, just to show you a bit of the sweater. When all the finishing is done I'll give you a detailed look at the whole marvelous thing. If I can take it off long enough to take the photos.

Your sweater looks gorgeous... If you're worried about pulling up your seedlings to thin them, just cut the extras down with scissors.

You can save all the seedlings. Carefully lift them from under the roots. Don't just pull them up by grabbing the stem. Gently separate them and replant them in other pots. Careful not to break the stems or tear all of the roots off. The more soil you leave on the roots the better.

I do this all the time.
Good Luck.
