The transplanting of Ox-heart tomatoes in greenhouse




January 25, 2022

Finally the time has come to transplant one of the agricultural products we love the most: the Ox-heart tomatoes! It is of course a vegetable that needs special care and time to develop before it is ready for sale.

That's why we start as early as December or January, depending on the temperature, to prepare the greenhouses and proceed with planting!

Transplanting Ox-heart tomatoes in three steps

First, we purchase our seedlings from the Soloblu nursery, which is located a short distance from our farmholidays. This year we prepared three greenhouses, so we had to transplant 5000 tomato seedlings. As we have already told you in the article dedicated to the preparation of the greenhouse of ox-heart tomatoes, the planting is divided into three phases.

First we put the seedlings on the ground, making sure that they were distributed in the furrows placed at a distance of 50 cm from each other, helping us with a piece of cane of the right length.

In this video we can see the moment when the seedlings were placed along the rows, at a constant distance of 50 centimeters from each other. To make it easier to measure the distance, we used pieces of cane of the necessary length.

Then with a hoe we made a small hole in the ground, to insert the seedling with its soil. We then covered it without exceeding the amount of soil, so as to leave the upper part of the loaf visible.

This is the moment when we make a furrow in the rows, in correspondence of the point where the plants will be placed, respecting the distance of 50 cm already prepared in the previous step.

We then moved on to the first irrigation, a crucial moment to quickly hydrate the seedlings while avoiding digging them up with the water jet.

This is the moment when we make a furrow in the rows, in correspondence of the point where the plants will be placed, respecting the distance of 50 cm already prepared in the previous step.

Initially the temperature of the greenhouses will be set at 7°. In this way, withstanding a little cold, the seedlings will be able to develop the first stage of flowers. Once this is achieved, we can increase the temperature of the greenhouse to 10°.

From this moment on, we expect a steady growth until the first harvest around April, and then continue throughout the summer and into October!
