2015_Day 230: Hope dimming for fall tomato seedlings

Still holding out hope for one of the two tomato plants in this pot. The volunteer zinnias, on the other hand, are doing just fine.

The pictures say it all — the tomato seedlings definitely look like they’ve seen better days. I planted them back in July, hopeful for fall tomatoes. They sprouted nicely and grew just fine for a good three weeks. Then the heat hit and they’ve struggled.

I’ll hold out awhile longer before I doom them to a compost pile. Who knows, maybe if I can get them transplanted into a raised bed, they’ll stage a comeback.
