 o
Jiffy Peat Pellet Advice Needed please.

Tomato seedlings, Cucumbers, Peppers (sweet bell and Jalapeno) sowed them on 4/5/12

Currently the tomatoes have 1st set of true leaves (you can see 2nd set budding and a few). They range in height from 2" - 2 3/4" - 3" max.

The cucumbers had to be potted up into 5" peat pots because the stems were too big and I was afraid they would fall over. 2 of them have the "bud" in the middle but the true leaves are not out yet.

I started them in a Jiffy 5089 Tomato Starter Greenhouse 36-Plant Starter Kit.

Should I pot up the Tomatoes into the 5" yet? If so, should I remove the netting?

I did not remove the netting on the cucumbers and I am begining to regret that.

See pics below and let me know what you think.

You can transplant those tomatoes if you want but *definitely* remove the netting. I'd even say go back and take the netting off the peppers. There was a thread a while ago by someone who planted out his peppers with that netting stuff on and it stunted the growth of his pepper plant because the roots were never able to grow outside that netting.
