Someone carefully placed these seedlings out on Seventh Street and Avenue A at the entrance to Tompkins Square Park this morning.
The neatly written sign explains:
These seedlings were raised on a windowsill. Grown from seed (from a beefsteak tomato from Trader Joe's).
Planted on Feb. 20, so they should bear fruit in 4-6 weeks.
Plant them in a big pot (they'll get big!) (the paper pots will dissolve)
If you want to grow them outside, they'll need to be hardened off. (Google it. It's easy)
Thanks to the reader for this photo!
