Attention Parents! You can download and print this letter.
I’m so happy to meet you! I am writing to thank you for planting me. I am Tomas, your new tomato plant, and I am so excited to start my new life in your garden.
I know I am just a little plant right now, but I have big dreams. I want to grow big and strong, so that I can produce lots of delicious tomatoes for you and your family to enjoy.
I know that I can’t do it without your help, though. So, here are a few tips on how to help me grow:
- Water me regularly. I need about an inch of water per week, but check the soil to make sure it is actually dry before watering.
- Give me plenty of sunlight. I need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.
- Fertilize me every month. Use a fertilizer that is specifically designed for tomatoes. You will be learning more about that soon.
- Protect me from pests and weeds.
I know I can be a bit of a diva, but I promise I am worth it! With your help, I will grow into a beautiful and productive tomato plant.
Thank you again for planting me. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
